Is it really that insulting to have a customer like your food so much that they want to share it with friends and family? Is it that bad that they want to remember the moments visually? And is it that damaging when they want to give your restaurant free advertising?
I thought I could leave it alone, but I can’t. The topic came up at 6 Course Discourse, a culinary forum I organized as part of Dine Out Vancouver. It featured talks from local chefs, including Scott Jaeger of The Pear Tree in Burnaby. He finished his presentation by imploring diners to “Eat it before you tweet it. Not the other way around.”
Since then, I’ve noticed more chefs speaking out about this so called “problem.” Read the full story.
