the way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000. But the image that's used to sell the food is still the imagery of agrarian America. You go into the supermarket and you see pictures of farmers, the picket fence, the silo, the thirties farmhouse and the green grass. It's the spinning of this pastoral fantasy. There are no seasons in the American supermarket. Now. There are tomatoes all year round, grown halfway around the world, picked when they were green and ripened with ethylene gas. Although it looks delicious, it's kind of a notional tomato. I mean, it's the idea of a tomato in the meat aisle. There are no bones anymore. If you follow the food chain back from those shrink wrapped packages of meat, you find a very different reality. It's not a farm, it's a factory.
