oh yummy....

now this is a good little book to read while eating....not.

in its (falsely) reassuringly subtitled booklet “the food defect action levels: levels of natural or unavoidable defects in foods that present no health hazards for humans,” the fda.’s center for food safety and applied nutrition establishes acceptable levels of such “defects” for a range of foods products, from allspice to peanut butter.

among the booklet’s list of allowable defects are “insect filth,” “rodent filth” (both hair and excreta pellets), “mold,” “insects,” “mammalian excreta,” “rot,” “insects and larvae” (which is to say, maggots), “insects and mites,” “insects and insect eggs,” “drosophila fly,” “sand and grit,” “parasites,” “mildew” and “foreign matter” (which includes “objectionable” items like “sticks, stones, burlap bagging, cigarette butts, etc.”). - nytimes

I've always found the more you know your food, the less likely you will eat it.

Food that had to be manufactured or had to travel across the globe has quite a story to tell. And it's not always a pretty one.

Having said that, food I grow myself or make myself hasn't got much to say.

You got a kitchen, make it your own damn self!

Sticks and stones
To build your bones
And turds
Do not surprize me!

I see London
I see France
I see my food moving.
Bugs can dance!

Pease porridge hot
Pease porridge cold
Pease porridge in the pot
