Reader: Farm to table? How about Monsanto to mouth?

While consumers continue to dish dirt about the

As Kimberly states her case;

"Farm to Table" is a personal pet peeve of mine...it's as if the person/establishment is trying to market something that should be a standard procedure. Honestly, is the alternative "Monsanto to Table" or "Processing Plant to Table" or "Chemistry Lab to Table?"

Also: Spiked Studded Ribboned Quivering (to describe poached eggs, please leave this word to the trashy romance novels) Depth of flavors Scratchmade/made from scratch

Thanks, Carly -- you've cooked our goose to perfection!
