Foodie Pseudery (33)

This is from a hive-inducing article on the ‘new gastronauts’ in London from the Telegraph:

He looks at the menu. ‘It really irritates me when people don’t spend time looking at the menu. In France no one speaks until they have studied the menu. I can’t bear it when people talk before ordering.’ I ask him what he is looking for in a menu. ‘A balance of flavours. I want to be experimental but I also want to match the food up so that we have a full culinary experience.’ I tell him I am happy for him to order for me. He chooses the cuttlefish risotto, rabbit salad, mozzarella plate and a courgette salad and then photographs it on his mobile when it arrives. ‘I photograph everything I eat,’ he says.

  1. Yeah, one of my (very foodie) friends at work tweeted it saying “this makes food sound not very fun”. They just sound completely pretentious little pricks!
