|Typical Foodie Instagram|
Just now, a meal in a smart restaurant begins not with tucking in your napkin or pouring a glass of water. Instead, when your food arrives, beautifully presented, you are supposed to take a photo of it and upload it to Instagram.
Some people are very scathing about this, others see it as a chance to celebrate some food art whose existence is fleeting.
I recently found a picture Pascoe took of some proper student food. It is clearly a superior meal – exactly what the metabolism of the growing young male requires – a large heap of filling, brown-coloured food. And as to presentation, I think the whole roast pigeon perched on top makes it look rather special – don’t you?
