(US) The Morality of Mealtime
In the March 2011 edition of the Atlantic, the writer B.R. Myers —
North Korea expert, hater of books a lot of people like, vegan —
launched a broadside against foodie-ism and food writing. Myers took
aim at chef-authors like Anthony Bourdain, who celebrates an
unabashedly hedonistic approach to eating, and Gabrielle Hamilton, the
author of the appropriately titled memoir Blood, Bones and Butter. To
Myers, what's missing in the new foodie literature — and in the
growing pop-cultural obsession with food, seen in the success of
reality shows like Top Chef — is any sense of morality.
