The intrigue and passion foaming through the "foodie" community — "Hidden" Valley Veggiegate!
The dickering between the “Sneaky Chef” and Jessica Seinfeld, wife to Jerry, over their similar books about how to “hide healthy vegetables into foods kids love” is pretty funny. Did it stray into classic TV territory? Well, only because “Seinfeld” is still a very funny show that will be loved for years to come — even though members of its core cast seem to have lost touch with, oh, basic manners. Recently, Jerry opined that the “Sneaky Chef” was a “wacko” on the Letterman show – see the video here. (Attention: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, please don’t do anything embarrassing in public. I enjoy watching you too much.)
I only occasionally read food blogs, so I had no idea how much this had been debated, (or that Seinfeld’s agent was the same one who had repped Kaavya Viswanathan, the young Harvard undergrad whose novel turned out to be plagiarized). Barbara Fisher’s food blog Tigers and Strawberries has the lowdown on the entire kit n’ hidden kibble in the kaboodle.
