IHOP Cheesecake-Pancake Stackers: Apocalypse Now?
|Are you the type of person who thinks this stack lacks cheesecake?|
Seems as though American gastronomy is following the path of American politics: A disappearing middle ground drowned out by passionate spokespeople with starkly opposite viewpoints.
On the one hand, you've got the Double Down/Pancake Stacker/fast food/agri-corporate/ Meatist/more-is-more/quantity-over-quality bacon wing. On the other hand, you've got the Alice Waters/Michael Pollan/Whole Foods/organic back-to-the-earth sustainable raw vegan less-is-more/quality over quantity soy milk fringe. And political preferences tend to be predictive of how one feels about food: Most in the healthful eating group tend to be politically progressive; those who like to stuff their faces with greasy crap tend to be politically...um, not progressive (this latter part of the claim admittedly including many many millions of exceptions). Read into it what you will.
