Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Hugo Matheson, the co-owner of the original Kitchen in Boulder, along with the new Kitchen Denver, is obsessed with the business. "I live and breathe every detail of the restaurants," he says in this week's Chef and Tell interview. "I can't imagine doing anything else."

No matter how stupid restaurant requests may be.

Says fraggle303:

Yeah, hey Matheson, guess what? Vegans don't have to be perfect. People have reasons for what they do -- maybe the food was for someone else.

Your 'contrary vegan' comment is not funny, interesting, representative, or headline-worthy. Keep your snarky attacks to yourself!

PS: WestWord -- this is the 2nd time you've published such a stupid comment in a chef interview, then put it in the headline. Is this standard fodder or what?

Hmm: self-described vegan asks for grilled chicken on her dish? Whose comment is stupid? Before you decide, read part two of Matheson's Chef and Tell interview that will be posted on Cafe Society today.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
