Just a quick update re the situation with the newspaper article.
You know…… we did SO much work, emails, interview, cooking, photos, more emails, more questions, and then the newspaper pulled the article because I wouldn’t rewrite my recipes to their specifications? (Check the previous post for background information.)
Specifications? What specifications? Obviously, I wasn’t advised of any specifications. My recipes are stress-free, laid-back, a little of this, a little of that, add more cilantro if you like cilantro, don’t add the red pepper flakes if you don’t like spicy food, you really don’t have to measure specifically, so enjoy it.
That being said, they wanted precise measurements and that’s not me. It’s just not how I write and that’s been the sticking point.
This week we’ve been emailing back and forth. Yes, I initiated the emails. I felt badly that people have been waiting to see the article, in the U.S. and elsewhere, and I wanted to determine if we could find some middle ground.
There might be a light at the end of the tunnel, and we’ll pick it up again next week. I don’t want to appear pushy. But, I’d certainly like to have the article published, not only for myself and the people waiting to see it, but for the writer and photographer who’ve already worked so hard on it. Stay tuned!
