Sean's Rants - "Farm-to-Table" and "Artisan"

Written by

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the meaning of terms like "farm-to-table" and "artisanal" are being treated like card tricks. Too much of it is smoke and mirrors. 

Farm-to-table promises on menus in Florida in summer are laughingly disingenuous.
The only thing that grows outside in Florida in August is barnacles. 
Last week even my rosemary died.
 
Encyclopedias describe an artisan as “one who makes things by hand …and may by experience and aptitude reach the expressive levels of an artist.”
 
McDonalds now offers an “artisanal” chicken sandwich.
 
Really.
 
At Eat Here we make our own bread, we make our own desserts and soups and sauces.
Our chefs are proud of the food products we source and the dishes we prepare.
The “expressive levels of an artist”…?...some days.
