Some of you may think yuk, but the reaction in product sales says there’s something going on here. It’s about cooking with food ingredients our grandparent’s may have. It’s about cooking with simple goose fat rather than infused virgin olive oil. It’s about ‘real food’ and maybe there’s something here which reflects why the ‘local food’ movement is growing well. Or something like that. We can’t quite put our finger on it. Thoughts?
