Shut Up Foodies

I found a really funny blog today that I thought I would share with you.

Do you know someone who would spend $300 on a hybrid apple, or buy three cartons of umame powder because it was the cool thing to do?  Do you know of a restaurant that offers a $30.00 bottle of champagne for $175 – just because they can?  Are you sick of hipsters and their cupcakes?  Snacktime, Meatball, and Julia Childless write about annoying eye rolling food trends and the obsessive-compulsive people that follow them.

Shut Up Foodies sums it up in their about column:

Attention, locavores, omnivores, urban butchers, backyard beekeepers, cheese fanatics, and conspicuous consumers of consuming: Your chickens won’t save the world and we don’t want the life story of everything on the menu. We don’t care what you eat–we just want you to lower the volume. Also, please stop talking about ramps.

An interesting read.
