No discussion of 2.5 oz., "local" chocolate bars wrapped in froufrou paper or "rock star" brooklyn "butchers" wielding adolescent sexual innuendo??

In addition to moving produce closer to consumers, the gap that needs to be closed is the gap in understanding what to do with raw, whole foods.

In other words, people don't know how to cook.

Interesting guy, though.

I'm thankful to know of your existence, Mr. Berry. I refer readers here as well to a great appearance on Bill Moyers Journal 11 days ago.
