Finally, a post on a blog that clearly mirrors what I have long thought about high end restaurants and pretentious chefs. While I love food, I find some menus to be a bit over-the-top when it comes to describing the evenings fare. In fact, it seems that there is an unspoken contest going on to see what chef can outdo the other in writing the most adjective laden description of something as simple as a garden salad.
See this lovely post from celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain for an example of what I mean. A water sommelier?You’ve got to be kidding!
