Fed Up with Foodies

Appearing on the Conan show, Rainn Wilson takes hipster foodies to task:

“‘This whole foodie obsession that is going on in America’s big cities, it just drives me crazy. It makes me sick,’ said Wilson. ‘They wait like months in advance for reservations at the right little diner. ‘Oh, you’ve got to go to Ming Mong’s restaurant because the chef is half Ethiopian, half Finnish and he makes meatballs out of goat, and he makes a gnocchi with Meyer lemon and squid shit.””

How Food “Made Us Who We Are”

Daniela Galarza previews the National Geographic Channel’s upcoming miniseries on food, which starts this Friday, November 21:

“Nearly 70 chefs, authors, food experts, and food scientists contributed to the series, including Nigella Lawson, Nobu, Morimoto, Modernist Cuisine’s Nathan Myhrvold, Michael Pollan, Rachael Ray, Ruth Reichl, Eric Ripert, and Marcus Samuelsson. Each of the one-hour episodes will focus on a specific theme, from food revolutionaries, to meat, to junk food, to seafood.”
