Deep thoughts at Jezebel!

Q:

Any discussion of a Food Network personality – be it Sandra’s tablescapes to Guy Fieri’s antics to Ina’s luxurious lifestyle (and I’m not even getting into Rachael Ray) – brings forth a similar barrage of passionate mixed feelings. What is it about food personalities that gets us so riled?

A:

The ambivalence towards current food celebrities, of course, is not that different from that we see leveled at any celeb: the scrutiny of appearance and private life is as cruel and irrational as that applied to all entertainers. But there’s something more, and I wonder if it doesn’t have to do with the fact that, well, we all eat.

It’s not that different, but there is something more, and it’s because we eat.

“Between two thick slices of white bread, you’ll find a generous filling of diced beef in a tangy tomato and herb sauce, layered with cooked pasta sheets and finished with a creamy cheddar, ricotta and mayonnaise dressing.”

Wow.  Just… wow.

More people probably commented on Jezebel’s Pie v. Cake than have filled out their Census, I’m positive.
