Synopsis: November 12, 2008
Tonight we launch the 2009 edition of the 100 Best Restaurants with a reception for 400 people in the Westbury Hotel. Chefs come to the launch because I'm rude about them in the speech. This evening I propose to test that thesis by insulting the entire audience. If nothing else it should mean a cheaper drinks bill next year:
'This evening is the Oscars of the Irish food world, with all of the vanity and some of the frocks, yet only a smidgen of the talent. And instead of preening, egotistical stars with truly extraordinary power, we give you preening, egotistical chefs with truly extraordinary names. Is it any wonder, I hear you ask, that kids called Derry, Dylan and Troy grew up to be such prima donnas?
This year we struggled to find a hundred restaurants worth recommending. So we gave up saying nice things halfway through ... each review. Diners will, we hope, enjoy the guide. And chefs? Well, chefs are like Waterford Crystal. Remarkably precious, unusually fragile and very nearly bankrupt.'
