And the process he followed was in line with some broader questions he asked himself over 100 years ago about what food meant to him: 'Are the ingredients of a grade we would serve at our own table? Does the combination of them appeal to our own sight, smell and taste? Is the price within the reach of most pocketbooks?' ..."
