Jan 22nd 2013 Too Many Cooks
I don’t share Arlo’s pique. I think it would be a good thing if everyone did cook at home more, from basic ingredients. I try. I know others who do. However, I’m afraid home cooking is far from ubiquitous, or even a fad. I remember my mother’s meals when I was a boy. Of course she aimed for tasty and beneficial, but it’s not like she had to strive for it. Her meals were naturally healthy by virtue of the whole food she prepared. Given the diet-related problems we have, I don’t see anything wrong with getting back to a little of that. As I said, I try.
