America sees itself as a food culture as a result of phenomena like The Food Network www.foodnetwork.com. I beg to differ. America is an eating culture. Regardless of the quality, quantity or source of the food, we eat...and eat and eat. Many of our so-called celebrity chefs are leading the parade of obesity. And we follow giddily along swallowing all the fat, sugar and salt they cook.
How their consciences can allow them to prepare food as they do knowing the health crises this nation faces is a mystery to me. I guess big payouts go a long way toward silencing that voice inside us that nags away when we do the wrong thing.
