I've rethought my initial endorsement of egullet.com. I like it here better. Too many food snobs over there, at least from what I can tell. Gripe gripe gripe. FoodTV is beneath them. Food mags cater to popular tastes too much. More than a few of them sound like folks who don't enjoy eating with people who don't share their *cough* refined tastes. They're the kind of people that I would hesitate to invite to a dinner party, lest my meager cooking skills and lax wine/food pairing philosophy offend their delicate palates. Cooking for them would be no fun.

Whatever happened to food bringing people *together*? Sometimes I envy people who enjoy virtually everything, even junk -- at least they're enjoying themselves. When you get down to it, isn't food and wine about fun and socializing? Food snobs make it seem like just another club designed to keep some people in and some people out.

Sorry, a.m. rant today.
