Eating is an agricultural act.
I’ve liked this quote since I saw it at Eataly in New York last summer. The quote is painted above the exit of the store (would it really be called a store or more a storemarketrestaurantwinebaretc?) and I came to a complete stop as I read it. If we all thought of eating as an agricultural act, what would change? Would we be more intentional about what we chose to eat and its impact? I’m thinking about putting this up in the kitchen to encourage more thought when stuffing our faces. I’m confident that both of my grandfathers got it.
