Well, there's good food and bad food. Since we aren't living in sub-saharan Africa on a six dollar a month food budget there's no reason to eat bad food.

When you learn about food and cooking you finally realize that there are much better alternatives to readily available food.

There is snobbery in every single subforum in this forum. I don't see why people make a bigger deal out of food snobbery than any other one.

I think some people here like to pretend that they only eat the best food known to man (which they may do ON OCCASION), but the reality is that they eat the same shit as the rest of us.

Actually, was thinking of having them with a bottle of the 09 Claypool that just came in.

Make sure it is seasoned with expensive salts.

actually, I don't think we'll end up going out. We're both beat after a long week, it'll probably end up being some Chianti and a movie at home. Perfect in my book.

The only food snobs that really annoy me are the idiots. That is, the ones who declare themselves experts by simply watching Top Chef and starting a blog, and yet say the words amuse-bouche or tourned carrot and they'll just give you a glazed (no pun intended) stare (not that I am not a food idiot - I fully admit that I am). We can group this with the hipsters that eat at fine places only during restaurant week since the $35 cut rate menu is cheaper than the $100 menu - but then proceed to rate and discuss the places like they are seasons regulars not realizing restaurant week is a special crap menu meant to appease people just like them with little effort or thought required by the chef.

I do have some special pink "andes mountain" salt that was a gift from a rather famous Peruvian chef. I still prefer Maldon

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
