“…if it weren’t for the vibrant but dwindling community of bloggers, we’d hardly see actual cooking discussed at all.” So says Mark Bittman in a recent column. The transformation of FoodTV into yet another reality show-driven channel (where people pretend to be living for real) is a disappointment for sure.
Seems like only yesterday that cooking was simple; grocery shopping was simple; getting fat was simple. Now, eating, like everything else, is another learning moment. And a topic for small talk with old friends and new. Where has cooking gone? Mainstream.
