Time for a rant. It's been a while. I'll get back to the more lyrical stuff in a minute, but today I’m gonna get my Grumpy Old Jewish Man on.
First let me identify my target: Food Bloggers.
So Food Bloggers are those clowns that maintain personal sites that cover things like:
- over pictorialised restaurant reviews, complete with contrived metaphors and over anxious emotional descriptors;
- essays that unnecessarily (and failingly) attempt to use the depth of narrative and style required for a first hand account of a Spanish Civil War battle, for what is actually only a recounting of a Wednesday night spent following Grandma's chocolate cake recipe;
- breathless stories of some food-stuff that an old sorority sister found in a tiny store with the tag 'Gourmet' or 'Artisanal' or 'Overpriced Nonsense' plastered across it;
- and other vapid topics and posts that, to be frank, I just couldn't be bothered to Google, check and then describe to you.
