I am pretty pinko too (it runs in the family) and it soothes me to know that often economics and ethics do overlap. I just listened to this freakonomics episode today about retailers that are more profitable because and not despite investing in their workers. I am sure the same can be said for the food industry. I pay more for the chickens that lay my eggs to be happy I will certainly pay more to have happy healthy humans make my tacos or risotto or whatever. And Chef Frhone i am with you on single payer health care. I have a brother that sure could use some health insurance. http://www.freakonomics.com/2012/06/14/a-c……-a-cheap-employee-a-new-marketplace-podcast/
How does one develop a vacation itinerary if it doesn't start with the food? I have traveled to New York for Lombardi's Pizza, spent two days in pursuit of Mark Bittman's favorite falafel in Paris (the end of Passover delayed things a bit), tacked on hours of travel time for various Portuguese treats, and it has all been worth it.
I have had your pot brownies and they were moist, delicious, and they made my roommate and her boyfriend into mutes for 36 hours. That's a winning recipe if I ever hear one.
