Frank Bruni, Former 'New York Times' Restaurant Critic, Discovers The Iowa State Fair

Frank Bruni, the former restaurant critic for the New York Times has temporarily abandoned the culinary delights of New York City to seek out something a little more...fried. He's been parading around the Iowa State Fair and live tweeting his experiences.

We had already heard about the fried butter present, but Bruni also alerts us to such delicacies as onion ring condiments and pork chops on a stick.

Does his experience make you hungry or nauseous?
