Don't eat dumb food

"Closing the Food Gap" author Mark Winne gave a fascinating talk this evening at Rabelais books in Portland. He spoke about how forces from sprawl to government subsidies conspired to give us a land of fast-food and processed everything. But he also spoke of the dawning of a new era of food consciousness and greater access to succulent local eats. I loved his comment about how we and our food have been dumbed down over the years by corporate marketers. All I could think of was Cheetos. I mean, what is in one of those Dayglo things?

Can't wait to read the book!
