'Foodie wannabes'? You mean people who like food but are too poor to afford artisan foods but would like to?

It's like designer imposter perfume that you can eat.

gadian: I think if you care more about how your food looks than how it tastes, you're doing it really wrong.  Unless it looks like vomit.  I've been to a lot of fancy diners where people insist on serving vomit.  That helps no one.  For the record, anything with bits of tofu or couscous looks like vomit.

FTA: At Hillshire Brands Co., which makes lunch meats, hot dogs and sausages, executives also are attuned to the fact that more people prize foods they feel are natural. At an industry conference in February, CEO Sean Connolly noted that in addition to taste, the appearance of its food needed work.

I'll take ass meat for $300, Alex.

Companies have been making and selling "distressed" hardwood floors and furniture for years now. Why not food?

fusillade762: It's one reason why Wendy's softened the edges of its famously square hamburger patties. The Dublin, Ohio-based company says it changed the patty to a "natural square" with wavy edges because tasters said the straight edges looked processed.

Who the fark cares how their hamburger is shaped?


I'm wondering how anyone can think a hamburger *doesn't* look processed.
