Pre-holiday rant: I am NOT a snob!

sandylc | Oct 30, 2013 01:31 PM

Tangenting off of the new Thanksgiving thread, WHY oh why are people who are passionate about food and recipes and freshness and variety and good quality, etc., often considered to be snobs and/or people to be made "fun" of? Is it an attack fueled by jealousy? I understand that some people just don't care that much about food, but I am equally sure that many of those people have passions that I am ignorant about/don't care about, but I don't make fun of them for it!

Why do I always feel like I need to hide or defend or explain my preferences for fresh vegetables and butter instead of margarine?
