Pope isn’t foodie enough for NPR – whatever that means

Only state-sponsored jazz, otherwise known as National Public Radio, could invoke derision about the new Pope’s eating habits.

In a piece titled, Yes, the new pope cooks, but he’s no foodie, NPR lays bare
its fondness for food porn.

I don’t care. I’m not Catholic; I’m not religious at all. But why NPR would deride Jorge Mario Bergoglio, or Pope Francis, for his preferred diet of fruit, skinless chicken and salads – which is mine – as not foodie enough seems pompous.
