Cast Your Vote To Get Me Published in Anthony Bourdain's 'Medium Raw'!

TLV Army!  I call upon you as I am in need of great assistance.  I’ve entered a contest being held by the publishers of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Medium Raw’ (my review of  ’Medium Raw’) and I need votes to get my essay published in the paperback edition of the book!  The contest is to write a 500-word essay on what it means to cook well.

Your Vote Can Help Get This Bubble Gum and Duct Tape Operation Published!

When I think of “cooking well,”  I can’t help but think of the ass-kicking crew at First Food and Bar, so they are ultimately who I decided to write about.  First has a crew bursting with pride, dedicated to the highest quality ingredients that consistently bangs out innovative food at a high level of execution. It’s this foundation that First Food and Bar is built upon that makes it a shining example of cooking well.

Please check out my essay, Cooking Well Is First and if you dig it, please vote for it, and please vote for it often.  Tell your friends, put it up on Twitter and Facebook.  Anything you’re willing to do to help me out achieve this once in a lifetime opportunity is greatly appreciated.  Also, I beg your forgiveness as this certainly won’t be the first time you’ll be hearing my plea for votes!

A direct link to the essay is found at –

I’ve also put a little widget at the top right hand corner of that you can click on anytime to vote.

Thanks again so much for your help!  Wish me luck!

    gutted to say it but i felt pretty sick after i ate at first this week. hope it’s just because i ordered rich stuff

  • I’m guessing we’ve eaten at First about 45-50 times since it has been open….never had an issue…and with my digestive system, I get the shits when someone winks at me differently!
