an eating trip: from my perspective

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to hang out with the guys from PIZZERIA712 on an exclusive eating trip to California then pay attention. C-Train has previously released the trip's itinerary but I'd like to explain the more esoteric aspects of our adventure. In the age of the curly fry it is comforting to know that there is a renewed and growing trend towards holistic dining. This is the kind of eating done on the most basic level: from farm, to belly. The grand state of California offers an abundance of this kind of eating. One of our stops took us to Berkeley, specifically Chez Panisse, where the proprietors and staff have made a commitment to supporting sustainable cycles of raising and harvesting fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy and all other edibles. When you are able to eat food that has been loved from it's inception to its preparation you feel a sense of belonging, a sense of meaning and community...not to mention you feel really good too. The consumption of food for nourishment is one of our most basic instincts. Whether we know it or not we all hold deep feelings and addictions to food. We must not submit to the enticings of the corporate farm or the fast food chain or the government subsidized crop. We all must make a commitment, a commitment to ourselves and each other to not taking the path of least resistance. Our very survival depends on it. It is this commitment that we at the pizzeria have made to ourselves and to you, our friends.
