Playing With My Food ~
A journal about food, thought, travel, and life; by Chef & Raconteur Chaz French.


I am furious with my government. I am disgusted with the lack of oversight, the lack of inspection and livid that the Chinese government thinks they can just send poisonous food into our country.

I came across this article in this morning’s paper, and am livid. Illegal pesticides, banned antibiotics, ‘putrefying bacteria’ are amongst the foods that have been found. Who know’s what’s in the other 99% of food imported to the United States?

I’ve been on the edge with this for a while, now I’m past it. When I return from Paris I’m going as close to 100% Local, Seasonal, & Organic as I possibly can with all of my food.

Fuck the FDA, Fuck China, and Fuck Agro-business. I’m going to meet some farmers.
