Opening up the food revolution to the masses
I can’t say that I’ve been to Jose Andres’ restaurant. And even though I stood outside Chez Panisse in North Berkeley on my recent trip to the Bay Area, I didn’t have a meal there.
Consider that you need a month’s advance notice, I’m not likely to dine at either establishment.
But on the trip, I enjoyed a wondrous array of fresh, local, well-grown food. And all of it was easily accessible.
High-end restaurants are going to be part of the revolution. But there is a danger that the publicity they receive may not paint a complete picture of the food revolution is all about.
Those who need the food revolution the most aren’t inclined to wait a month to get into a restaurant. They need better access to well-grown food, not worse access.
