Bloggers Slam Martha Stewart’s Food Porn Cred

Remember when Martha Stewart was like “bloggers are not ‘experts,’ but I hope they write about me anyway” and we were like “that is a very dumb thing to say?”

Last night Los Angeles Times blogger Jenn Harris got her revenge by mocking Stewart’s attempts to create food porn. Her headline?

Martha Stewart takes the worst food photos, ever

“Martha Stewart, the domestic goddess who can supposedly cook, decorate and get herself into and out of pleasant jail, can’t seem to operate her camera phone and take a decent food photograph to save her life.”

It was as bloggy as a blog can be—she even presented the offending photos in gallery form! But her points are valid. This salad, for example, looks like it just can’t deal anymore.

Stewart later defended the same meal, writing:

“Actually the onion soup was utterly delicious and the ice berg wedge divine.”

We might make a comment about not biting the hand that feeds you or using the word “divine” to describe anything other than John Travolta’s performance in Hairspray, but that point is pretty self-explanatory. Maybe Martha should stick to letting someone else take a picture of her getting not-quite-photobombed by Usher:

Or maybe she just needs better filters.
