People (usually over 50 who didn't grow up with microwaves and who have spent more years not working than actually working, so they have loads of time on their hands;) looking down their nose at people who don't bake their own bread, make their own jam, make their own pastry, and spend 3 hours a day, chopping and peeling and cooking every last morsel from scratch.
Many of these pseudo-intellectuals claim to even 'grow' their own foods; fruit, veg and grain, etc etc, and they scoff at people who buy frozen veg, and lecture them fervently on how much better 'fresh' is. And they name anyone who uses ready meals as chavs or lazy or somehow sub-intelligent.
Who the hell does Sylvia think she is, having a go at me for giving my kids microwave toad-in-the-whole. She is such a cook-from-scratch snob.
