Food critic who trashed Montreal bagels is now slamming maple syrup

Sep 20 2018, 3:34 pm

Canadian delicacies and former New York Times food critic Mimi Sheraton are not getting along. The vocal foodie has taken aim at another provincial favourite, and Quebeckers think she’s barking up the wrong tree.

Last week, the ex-food critic took to Twitter to compare Montreal bagels to “broken glass” and the internet reacted accordingly.

The author of 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die was back on Twitter yesterday, this time going up against maple syrup.

Some Canadians, still fuming about the great bagel war, reacted only the way we should when people trash our beloved maple syrup: hilariously justifiably.

From here on, we’d recommend staying away from this trend, Mimi. What’s next, our smoked meat?
