Meghan Daum is kidding, right?

I'd love to think Meghan Daum is being sarcastic by non-judgementally writing about what she calls "fauxstessing," the practice of women buying a prepared meal at a restaurant or a gourmet grocer, transferring it to their own serving dishes and then presenting it as their own culinary creation, especially when one example is about a woman trying to win over a male co-worker.

Do women still feel the pressure to make it look like they can perform "women's work" to prove to men that they're, well, women? Or is MD merely chronicling yet another aspect of LA life that is more about artifice than the truth?
