My good friend, Kashmir Lever helped me develop the Food&Forks official rating system over a few cocktails in the treehouse. While I've rated a few blogs thus far, I've felt grading to be important information for people. This article outlines the description of the forks you might find within an organic post. However, the make-shift grading is used primarily for fun, and not as serious as, oh let's say a Zagat.
Another note, my 1-5 fork review isn't nearly as stuffy and shouldn't be used to degrade a restaurant or product unless they truly deserve a stabbing. (Okay, you can laugh a bit I hope?) But, to be a little more professional, the purpose of this site is to inform, educate and enjoy the intimate world of food. You might find a few other items of focus such as a kitchen tool or a terrific cookbook. Nonetheless, the opinions are strictly those of the writer.
Also, a nugget of info here, pay attention to the description of the food and enjoy the experience. And, if you're the type of person who won't pick a random restaurant without reading the reviews ( 88% trust reviews as much as personal recommendations, vs. 83%) prior to your visit, this blog may certainly help.
While the purpose of the info you'll find on this page is to showcase local and national restaurants, you may find a write up on a guest chef in who wouldn't qualify for the rating.
There you have it! Why Forks? Why not?
