Dinner with a side of self-righteousness

janniecooks | Mar 29, 201501:50 PM

A mild rant about eating local, out of touch food writers and web sites telling people what they should and should not eat.

A brief quote from the article: "asking people to "eat local" who live in northern climes where "local" means "nothing green" for six or seven months out of the year, and do not get to spend a few months each winter in Sicily teaching a cooking class, is pretty rich. A food writer who is telling other people how they could eat, if they wanted to, is doing a great public service. A food writer who is telling other people how they should eat (just like me, except without my access to ingredients) is just obnoxious. You can't possibly know how they should eat, unless you have spent some time living their lives.
