Quote: Food as Alive as This

Beautiful live food

Foodie Quote:

“When you’re cooking with food as alive as this —
these gorgeous and semi-gorgeous fruits and leaves and flesh —
you’re in no danger of mistaking it for a commodity, or a fuel,
or a collection of chemical nutrients.
No, in the eye of the cook or the gardener …
this food reveals itself for what it is:
no mere thing
but a web of relationships among a great many living beings,
some of them human, some not,
but each of them dependent on each other,
and all of them ultimately rooted in soil
and nourished by sunlight.”

– Michael Pollan, from In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
