Revenge of the anti-Foodie

I just happened to catch a B.R. Myers rant against Foodie culture in the Atlantic today. Now, I'd be the first to admit that I am not classy enough to be a Foodie, but I've certainly known some and profited by that knowledge over the years in the form of a lot of great meals. But I did enjoy Myers' take on all this. As is usually the case with his rants and manifestos, he goes too far, but I have to say I didn't mind him taking Michael Pollan and Alice Waters down a peg or two. Too popular for their own good around these parts...

Myers is a great seer througher of things, and if you haven't read him, you should really take a look .
