I share the opinions that you put forth in this entry on a major level. As a soon-to-be college graduate with a degree in Media, Culture and Communication with an emphasis on food media, the 1) glut of social media experts out there 2) saturation of food blogs (and most of them the photo, caption, photo, caption kind) and 3) the fetishization of high-end (and just over-hyped) dining experiences trouble me on some level. I think about them every day as I intern at prominent digital and print food media outlets (you actually mentioned one of them above). Food is becoming something of celebrity status and spectacle, which seems appropriate for the American way of thinking about the world, but I'm uncomfortable with dining and cooking becoming relevant in our culture only because of spectacle, food porn and sensationalism. It's more intimate than that. We all have a connection that runs much deeper and in many different directions.
