As much as I love food, cooking etc. I absolutely despise these people and think Michael Pollan should be hung by his testicles for two weeks as punishment for his sins against humanity. Thanks for poasting.

Pretty good article, the whole foodie scene is the epitome of self important narcissism.
Some choice quotes:

"there appears to be no greater point of pride in this set than to eat with the indiscriminate omnivorousness of a rat in a zoo dumpster"

"no small perversion of language is needed to spin heroism out of an evening spent in a chair. "
