In his column today Plain Dealer reporter Bob Smith had some wonderful things to say about me and the new edition of Cleveland Ethnic Eats. I’m blushing. And proud. And most of all happy that I’ve been able to bring attention to all the great ethnic restaurants and markets in the region. I got a call just a couple of days ago from the family that owns Perla Homemade Delights, mentioned in Smith’s piece, telling me that people had been coming in the past couple of weeks because they just read about the bakery in the latest edition of the book.
