A Bit More on Bread

My friend Liam Thatcher has put up a thoughtful follow on from my post(s) yesterday on his blog.

Liam writes,

I think at some level, the desire for an authentic food experience – locally sourced, naturally grown, un-adulterated, and perhaps even homemade – may reflect an inherent longing for a return to an Edenic state.

In many cases there’s a definite desire to return to practices and methods of yesteryear, before evil mass-produced corporations stepped in and conditioned us towards quantity over quality. But what if the yearning actually goes a little further back than that? To a day when:

‘The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.’ (Genesis 2:15)

The whole thing is worth reading. You can find it here.

(And yes, Liam did use to write for Think. And yes, that Andrew and I keep cutting and pasting his blog here is to say that we miss him!)
