The article mentions: ‘It is so much fun to be a ‘food snob’. There was a time it was simply wine & cheese over which people would generally put their noses up into the air. Today almost every class of food tends to have its praise-singers. Patés, truffles and sauces made with skill are very desirable.

“Traditional breakfast foods such as idlis, parathas, French toast, poha and omelettes all demand time and some amount of skill to make, as well as fresh ingredients. That is not easy when breakfast has now shrunk to a mere energy booster between hurried office commute and morning alarm.

No surprise, the instant foods have done well out of breakfast: ready pancake mixes, cold and hot cereals, granola bars that you can slurp up, and grab on your way out.”
