Food Humblebrag. . .


A form self promotion where the promoter thinks he is, almost subliminally, bragging about himself in the context of a humble statement or complaint.

Got any good food related humblebrags?

            You flatter me. 1. I'd never use that word and 2. I was merely stating a was being neither humble nor a braggart.

              Obviously, you are missing the meaning of humble brag.

              Stating the fact that you would 'cook more if......our maid quit' is a classic example of Humble bragging..

              Humble Brag
              'When you brag about something without even realizing it'.

              It's all good..we all do it in some shape or form.

                I would love to show you how to properly use a good knife.

                If you owned any.

                1. re: INDIANRIVERFL

                  ; )

                    You know what they say about a dull knife. Most likely to cut you to the bone.

                    The sharp knife cuts all the way through to the cutting board.


        2. The tenderloin was done to a turn, the truffles were lovely, but everyone asked for A-1.
