Work gloves, porcelain, beer, wine, whipped cream, paper, fish food and bullets?
That is the way food would like to be – authentic and natural – like in the old days when people harvested their own crops. Every time we eat a piece of food, we take a bite out of the world.
In some countries we have this little kid that asks for the carpaccio, whereas other children don’t even know what a carrot looks like, because all the food they know comes from a jar. Additionally, the complex, global mixture of our food carries a great risk. The wave of liberalization in the 1980s and the accompanying improvements in infrastructure, technique and logistics, were followed by a steady rise in the number of trade transactions. After Brazil we are the leading exporter of food, especially meat, dairy products and vegetables. Pork chops and sausages, obviously. It draws upon a range of sources literature, archeology, epigraphic records, anthropology, philology, botanical and genetical studies to trace the history of Indian food: classification, customs, rituals and beliefs, including the etymology of food terms. Nature can be imitated by means of variable grazing, crop rotation, water purification and the re-use of surplus heat. [pullquote] One of the major problems of our current food system – driven as it is by growth, expansion and world trade - is that is totally contrary to the circular, local character of nature itself. It is a fact that it is virtually impossible for a farmer to earn a decent living anymore.
All of a sudden, the supermarkets that until recently were locked in a dead-end price war, are in a competition over sustainability.

Then, finally we could dig in. And I wonder - given the idealized view of what we should be doing with growing our food - how countries like Canada that have a very short (if effective) growing period could survive in a future when we run out of oil. From the moment man stopped being a nomad, the stuff we put in our mouths has shaped the landscape.
The Boston Tea Party is just one example of a rebellion over food, but … First and foremost this landscape must be able to narrow the existing gap between pastoral and large-scale, between nostalgia and industry, between pick-your-own farms and Walmart. KTA provides an quite fascinating details into our food.
I love it when folks get together and share opinions. In the supermarket the story is about the price of food, in a restaurant or delicatessen it is about taste and origin.
In the period between 1947 and 1979 the production levels of global agriculture doubled.
The American author Barbara Kingsolver gave us the following delicious observation: ‘Food is a rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is often the pleasurable choice.’ In the meantime a growing number of people have become aware of this fact, judging by the popularity of farmers markets and the increasing overlap between delicatessen and health food stores.
