Dangers of No Self-Control
Postmarks  July 13, 2007
"...Dear Editor, It was with true amazement that I read Virginia Wood's almost surreal piece on her gastric bypass surgery ["Enough Is Enough," Food, July 13]. I have always thought that having a morbidly obese food critic is perverse at best, but her writing is usually solid, and she does have a real heart for local culinary talent. It has been sad over the years to see her barely able to move at various food events, a real red flag as to the dangers of no self-control. But her article about trying to slim down really takes the cake (in one bite, apparently)..."

After a Fashion
The outlook sure looks rosier when the dress sizes start to drop
Columns  July 20, 2007, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...YES, VIRGINIA… Well, if our Austin Chronicle Food editor cohort Virginia Wood can spill her guts – no pun intended – about having had weight-loss surgery, then Your Style Avatar guesses he can, too. As if it weren't already obvious to anyone who has seen us in the past few months, we've undergone quite the transformation recently, dropping 10 inches off of our still-well-padded frame..."

Noise Pop's Sonic 'Covers' Feast
Songs in the Key of Food
DAILY SXSW  April 2, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...But I'm going to mention the first one only in this paragraph, by way of a tip-o-the-hat to artist Jeff Scott and the Chronicle's food editor Virginia Wood, and the fine folks at Foreign & Domestic who feted our fortunate table with one of almost everything from that night's diverse menu. But I'll return to Scott and F&D in these pages again, to be sure. I'm also hoping to return to whatever next thing the tastemaking music-and-food impresarios of San Francisco's Noise Pop and graffEats projects do locally. Because that's the other dining experience that recently dazzled my sensorium. To the point where I can actually write "dazzled my sensorium" with a straight face. Noise Pop has this series they've been doing for years in California's Bay Area. It's called "Covers," and it's where graffEats chef Blair Warsham composes a multi-course meal based on the signature dishes of acclaimed chefs from around the nation. Like covering a song, see? Like how the Dum Dum Girls covered Morrissey's "There Is a Light that Never Goes Out," kind of, except that of course it's the tastes and textures, the whole culinary gestalt, of food that's being covered here. Sound good? Well, what sounds even better – literally – is that the whole glorious meal is accompanied by musical covers chosen to complement each course. Not just obvious choices based on wordplay – not somebody covering Chubby Checker's "Peppermint Twist" if there's a peppermint twist, say – although your hosts might be that endearingly goofy every now & again – but more subtle pairings of eclectic sonic goodness with what you're eating. Yeah, it does sound good, doesn't it? And to that, add this: Wine pairings provided by Wente Vineyards for each course, too, if you're so inclined. Perhaps, at this point, you're considering salivating? Perhaps, at this point, you're already considering attending the next "Covers" iteration? Let's take a closer look at this most recent one, first, this one that Noise Pop brought to Austin in time for SXSW and which they unveiled at the Swoop House. Yes: That's the place near East Seventh that's run by Stephen Shallcross and the savants of 2Dine4 Catering. Yes: That's the place that hosts those incredible Supper Friends dinners. The sound designer and Foley artist Buzz Moran accompanied me on this gustatory adventure, because we're both into food, as the saying goes, and because we never really have a chance to sit down & just chat although we're often involved in the same or overlapping projects. Also, the man looks good in a suit. Tall, thin, well-groomed..."

'Chronicle' Food Writers Should Follow My Agenda!
Postmarks  August 1, 2007
"...Editor, The reply to my letter [“Postmarks,” July 20] concerning Virginia Wood's glowing review of Lap-Band surgery ["Enough Is Enough," Food, July 13] missed the point entirely. Wood is your chief food writer but almost never mentions the concept of nutrition. Isn't that why we eat food? Instead, she treats food as entertainment and judges it weekly almost entirely on taste, not on its merits in contributing to a healthy life. Food is meant to keep one alive and healthy; only by abusing food does one become obese..."
