YGBSM (fast-food burger department)

This article sums up pretty much everything I find ridiculous about the foodie movement. The whole point of a Big Mac is that it's cheap, tasty, and YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE IT YOURSELF. Taking the time and trouble to go through all the steps in that blog to produce something that is, arguably, not a significant improvement over the original in taste (to say nothing of price) is completely insane.

Don't get me wrong - I'm totally on board with the idea of spending more to get a better-quality burger, which is why I often stopped at Five Guys or Wendy's back when I was in the market for burgers, but re-engineering something unique to McDonald's (or any other fast food joint) is just dumb and wrong. The whole concept of fast food is that it is fast. You don't have to cook it, much less sperg about the actual number of sesame seeds on the bun and come up with a way to get just the right density.

Up to this point, most of the foodie stuff I've seen has revolved around appreciation of stuff not normally found at the corner grocery (which often slides into food snobbery), or learning to do things right/better. Okay, there's stuff like the meat & cheese "gingerbread" house, but as a low-carb type, I could theoretically argue that was better than the sugary original. ;)

This seemed to be a combination of food snobbery (OMG we can't eat at McDonald's!) and pointless sperging over ingredients, and I don't even get what they were trying to prove.

I don't think that that is a Foodie thing, I think it is just an idiot thing.
