What a Crock...

The previous post made the case that we all - producers and consumers alike - have an obligation to reach high. Such lofty sentiments and high-flown language... Make every bite a sacrament.

Well sometimes, to paraphrase Freud, a sandwich is just a sandwich. Try telling my youngest son - or most of society for that matter - that they should prepare and eat only extraordinary things. Or, failing that, at least properly regret the compromise.

To quote many a New Yorker - fuhgeddaboudit.

Impractical. Effete. Pompous. Insufferable.

Guilty as charged - and eating very well, thank you.
