“SQUELCHED ENTHUSIASMS”

“Literary Review: Pro-celebrity cookbooks,” Private Eye, 2006.12.22–2007.01.04:

The proliferation of large-format cookery books [sic] may have something to do with our native love of elaborately-prepared victuals, but that is certainly not how they are designed to be used…. Tom Aikens’ Cooking… is a case in point…. His recipes may well be interesting and original; some of them may even be feasible in the average domestic kitchen. But the point is academic since the pale-grey sansserif text is almost impossible to read. You obviously aren’t meant to actually use it, silly.

The International Compliant Style crosses over? (Cf. “Gr[e]y text revisited.”)
