The uselessness of wine experts, disturbing deep-fried
foodstuffs and "great big fat lies" of the food revolution on
today's survey of the food web landscape.
Eliane Glaser of the
Guardian UK contemplates, "Is the food revolution just a
great big fat lie." Some great points about the realities of home
cooking vs. what celebrity chefs pretend is normal
living. "Reality, normality, hard-working families: this is
the mantra of the multimillionaire celebrity chef. But the recipes
have trouble sticking to it because, despite the homely trappings,
they are essentially restaurant food."
The lofty prose of wine experts: "Kind of useless," to those
with "normal tasting abilities," according to a new study,
The Daily Meal. No wonder I never seem to notice the subtle
note of smoked starfruit with undertones of autumnal
Texas continues to overstep the boundaries of deep fried decency
at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo's
Gold Buckle Foodie Awards. This time the culprits are fried
Kool-Aid, fried cookie dough on a stick, and a well-received fried
red velvet cake.
Further developments in deep-fried food crimes: McDonald's
the McRibster. The deep-fried boneless mystery meat patty is
topped with bacon, pepper-jack, lettuce, onion, honey mustard and a
chili sauce. Suddenly, the Shamrock Shake seems palatable. Via foodiggity.
