So I’m reading this post at CNN blogs about Dave Lieberman, the youngest host on the Food Network. Don’t get me wrong, I am most certainly not the grammar or spelling police. If it weren’t for spell check I would be screwed and grammar? I’m a damned cook, what do I know about grammar anyway?

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this sentence? “Now, two cookbooks in and the youngest host ever on the Food Network, Dave is helping college guys actually whip up something eatable in that first kitchen.” Now perhaps eatable is OK, like I said I’m not the grammar police, but shouldn’t it be edible in this instance?
