    Aw, Shucks Of Earl Long, the thundering former governor of Louisiana, critic A. J. Liebling once mused that “Southern political personalities, like sweet corn, travel badly.

    It’s an odd thing, going to restaurants these days. The Internet Age has collided with the Foodie Revolution (yes, foodie) to create a world where dishes travel far from their restaurant homes, thanks to professional photobloggers and chefs embarking on the never-ending food-festival circuit.
