Joanne Kates

Joanne Kates Revealed


I was talking to a chef last week who mentioned James Chatto had recently been in to review his restaurant. Since Toronto Life's star food critic has one of the most recognizable faces in the business the chef was able to alert his staff so Chatto would be given proper service.

When I asked him if Joanne Kates had dined there yet he said he didn't know what she looks like. You see, The Globe's restaurant scribe has a reputation for going to great lengths to avoid being photographed. She does this so her readers can be confident that she never receives any special treatment.

How to explain then why Kates wouldn't be a bit more cautious about uploading photos of herself to her Camp's web site. Doesn't she know these images can be found through a simple search on Google?
