After keeping Phoenix guessing about his strategy to take over the universe (or at least the Valley), local food marketing/PR whiz, blogger (a.k.a. JuxtaPalate) and man-about-town Ty Largo announced his new agency today, and former Arizona Republic food critic Nikki Buchanan has officially come out as a member of his new team.
As you'll recall, Buchanan just resigned from the Republic, and Chow Bella has been tracking her career trajectory for years.
