Plastic flowers and waxy candles are equally stupid and are only attractive to those who think cute is more important than edible. Fools who lace food that other people will eat with inedible crap are utter jerks and should be made to consume the refuse.I actually like the idea of a rustic cake that's made of cheese, since the textures, décor, sourcing, and flavors are more diverse (and interesting) than an actual cake. But I can see how some assert that moss does not belong on or near a plate, except at a picnic.
...the crass spread of the grilled cheese into winking haute menu item risks devaluing the deep currency of our childhoods by marketing this simple concoction until it's as overplayed as the burger and ripe for parody. Then we'll get bored and start filling our grilled cheeses with rutabaga or water chestnuts or whatever other bullshit keeps things interesting.I'm with Stefan. With PB and J's on the horizon, next thing you know, we'll find it perfectly acceptable for servers to spoon-feed diners puréed parsnips and beets.
