"Blame the recession, the boom in eating out as a pastime for the youth (in my day, everyone was taking far too much speed ever to think about eating) and the fact that gourmet junk food is easy to blog about ... The whole movement has somehow become shorthand for cool; why, I don't know. It's not as if we're eating like style mavens; we're eating like children."

— Marina O'Loughlin, restaurant critic for Britain's The Guardian: Weekend magazine, in a rant against gourmet burgers and the elevation of other traditional junk foods.
