    Thanks for pointing our attention to the Farmer in Chief article. What a clever title. The world would be a much better place if the US president’s title was Farmer in Chief rather than Commander in Chief.

    Michael Pollan is a very important author. His work should be part of grade school curriculum. It has troubled me that food has not been a topic of important political discussion in the mainstream coverage of the US presidential election. the broad topic of Food consumption and production deals with the economy, health, the environment, the workforce….. and life values….

    This recent article in El Ganso Gris shows that Food is an important topic for everybody. Food policies should play a central role in the presidential debates and should be a major concern to us all.

    These issues are not just important to me because I am a chef. They are important because I am a human.

    Great links. Whats the baby got? Cilantro? Parsley? She’s so cute, I love when they have those little fat cheeks!

    Sí, cilantro! Good call. Man, those cheeks are something else, eh? (Thighs too!)

    And thanks for the comment, Roger. We can only hope. Feels like a movement is building. Pollan has been very influential in our household. The Omnivores Dilemma convinced Becca to eat meat again, long as it’s naturally/sustainably/healthily/happily raised. Just makes more farming sense. We’ve been enjoying a monthly meat share (CSA style) from a great lil farm in central Massachusetts for the last several months.

    :) Gardening is great, I have a bunch of stuff about sustainability and self sufficiency gardening on one of my blogs. I eat very little meat, sort of my way of expressing solidarity with those who can barely afford food. I want to not eat meat at all, but then mofongo or something calls my name and I slip.

    I’m in a “home grown, why should I spend my money watering a lawn I cant even eat when people are starving and food costs too much, its a shame to be so wasteful” Phase.

    Fat thighs are even better than fat cheeks, you just want to eat them up they’re so cute!!!!!
