Why I Love The Guardian

Because of writing like this:

Watching [Marco Pierre White] microwave bacon is like catching your dad cheating at scrabble - the disappointment makes respect impossible.

Tim Hayward writes that he watched last night's edition of Marco's Great British Feast, with "hot, salty tears in my eyes" as Marco Pierre White ordered his bacon microwaved. His disappointment is palpable and beautifully expressed.

If you don't already have the Word of Mouth linked in your Google reader, do it now. It's a must for a food lovers and fans of well-crafted writing.
