Everyone makes a lifestyle choice. There are times when yours may rub people the wrong way. It is then when your lifestyle choice suddenly becomes an issue for them. In some cases, they may get the impression that you feel superior to them in one way or another. It’s all subjective, of course. But it’s when those people suddenly start labeling you an elitist that things get really personal.
Not all foodies are elitists. Yes there are some that are, but not all of them. This is a growing issue, and it’s the main topic of today’s show.

And for every single elitist foodie, there are several who are not.
