We spend pretty much all day online, reading and blogging about food. So we had to snicker (albeit self-consciously) when we saw this new site, Shut Up, Foodie! It skewers some of the memes so prevalent in food blogging: Local food, organic food, bacon, bacon, bacon...

Also, they would like us to stop talking about ramps.

Their manifesto:

Attention, locavores, omnivores, urban butchers, backyard beekeepers, cheese fanatics, and conspicuous consumers of consuming: Your chickens won't save the world and we don't want the life story of everything on the menu. We don't care what you eat--we just want you to lower the volume. Also, please stop talking about ramps.

Taken in good fun, it's actually a pretty good read — nothing like getting more aware of our own genre's clichés!
