3) I fucking hate reading the comments of food blogs. The only thing worse than reading the self-serving tripe of most food blogs is the comments. Specifically this. Someone immediately is giving advice on veganism which...isn't really applicable to the 99%. Then someone is on an anti-consumerist food approach, some other bullshit, etc etc etc.
4) Also, the self-indulgent photography on food blogs,too. Just please take clear pictures. Not everything needs super deep, highly-stylized settings with a shallow depth of field. Its ok to show the food and not create some glorious set for every picture, turning your entire website into some over-precocious self-fellating orgy.

you should start a food blog, and then troll the comments of your own blog

I approve of both of these.

However, I'm not good enough a photographer for it to take off. Nor can I write such diarrhea of the keyboard.

My pickled onion flowers didn't turn out that good. They needed a blanching. Also don't think they had too much flavor to begin with.

Ok, perhaps I'm overreacting, say "the fish" or whatever but drilling down into third and fourth tier ingredients is just pretentious and a waste of everyone's time imo.

Voilà, here's the fish, vegetables and sauce you've ordered. And here's some more of the red wine--pardon me--the wine.

Emailed hotel concierge in Tokyo like a month ago asking for them to make a reservation. They call the restaurant and find out they're not yet taking reservations, but didn't check and find out that they were closing for a vacation the day(s) that I asked for until June 1. So now basically every other restaurant is booked.

Not pissing me off: managed to score a reservation at an introduction-only place.

There is so much bad food writing...

Although I did read a very charming piece in Saveur this weekend. I think it was so good probably because the writer was limited to four inches.

That's really tough, man.

Finding my autographed copy last week with a page dog-eared was the closest I've ever come to domestic abuse.

actually, with cookbooks, the more stained and dog-eared the better! those are user's manuals, not literature.
