It bothers me that some restaurants that are supposedly trying to educate the public about food choices and farming STILL charge exorbitant prices for their dishes. One example is the Blue Hill restaurants and farms (which are super prestigious and has received special chef awards and recognition).
What is the point of having that goal for the farm and restaurant if you are only going to reach people whose pocketbooks are fat enough to eat there?
Who is your target? And if you can’t grow and serve food cheaply and on a large enough scale, what are you really accomplishing?
This system is just perpetuating the idea that fresh, healthy food is something that only the elite have a chance of realizing.
