This is probably going to generate a HUGE outcry from the Foodinistas, but I could not help myself: AA Gill in the Sunday Times on one of my chief annoyances - couldn't have said it better myself:

"One of the great bonuses of the imminent grand depression is that it looks as if the first casualty will be the utterly bogus and cynically manipulative organic-food movement. The vertiginous ascent of costs has been a straightener for restaurants; apparently, cheap, simple dishes have doubled or tripled in price. At the same time, customers are more price-conscious. So, using organic ingredients when there is no discernible taste or digestive benefit, only the mild scent of fashionable self-righteousness, is hardly worth it. "

:) Karen I semi-agree with you.

I will gather my thoughts (in my sleep) and get back to you.

You know I love debate and huge outcries!
Good night.

I have to check on what they agreed-upon at the summit today.
