Foodie Pseudery (12)

Jeffrey Steingarten is probably best known for his recent sweaty-palmed ode to Gwyneth Paltrow. But as Vogue‘s food writer, he’s a fine figure of a pseud. This is from an article about what he eats in a week:

We had a guest from India. He’s quite old and he’s a very particular eater, so we went to ABC Kitchen for dinner. And he asked me, ‘Obviously the chef didn’t have to do much to the ingredients, so why do you need a good chef?’ I tried to explain how the cooking was not as simple as he thought it was, it just looks simple. We had many dishes: the Jersey tomato on bread, certainly the squash that’s sautéed with Parmesan.

I salute you, elderly, picky Indian guest.
