From the guilty pleasures of late night buttered noodles to hoarding ramen noodle packets in the back of the pantry so nobody else will get them, food is the introvert’s ticket to a lifetime of interacting with people.
But what happens when your personal moment of shoving buttered noodles in your face becomes fair game for critique as the centerpiece of American culture’s dinner table? When all of a sudden your choices on what to put in your mouth affect your reputation, Instagram account, and social circle?
We start to shy away from the intimacies of food and instead opt for the spectacle of it. The conversation reaches for the low-hanging fruit of what is already on the public dinner table, rather than digging deeply into our own relationships with eating and each other.
Our favorite foods are ritual based, not trend-worthy. Our favorite food experiences are accidents, not bandwagons.
And that is what SNAX is about. Remembering our personal relationships with food instead in of cowing to food culture's insinuations that they are subpar, uncultured, lacking sophistication, or missing key vocabulary terms.
To hell with food media’s rules.
Your food is OK: even if we don’t happen to want any. And so is ours.
Let’s talk about it.
