Slate started it last summer. Last week, David Carr wrote about Rachael Ray in the Times, and to my dismay, he ran with the same line that Ray herself always uses when asked about Ray-haters. She’s not a gourmet chef, she’s just a regular gal, she can’t apologize for liking burgers and beer, food snobs will just have to get over it.
You see, the world is divided into two kinds of people: formally trained food snobs who hate burgers and regular, hard-working, busy people who only have time to eat piles of ground turkey and melted cheese for dinner every night.
What’s next, three stars for her burger factory?
