Foodie Reflects on Past Farm Life
Farm-to-table is all the rage - and we love it as much as anyone else - but sometimes we forget that what we see in restaurants is an all-too-perfect version of our food. Patrise Shuttleworth of the Houston Press shares her own farm-to-table personal narrative that reminds us of the less delightful side of farming.
Well okay, I understand the birds and the bees. A farm is a great life lesson in the real, uncensored birds and the bees. What no one tells you is that male goats emit a particularly foul odor that is very close to what goat cheese tastes like. It truly catches you by surprise the first time, and then it just becomes sickening. As a lover of goat cheese, I swore I would/could never eat it again.
