Food is an hedonistic exercise for soul (luckily) and, as such, it belongs to the decadent stage of any civilisation. Our civilisation went over (unfortunately) the decadentism and now we are in full recession. I am afraid that, if we accept the principle that eating well needs also the support of financial capabilities, food for soul will then remain a privilege for few. In alternative, those, like me, with a moderate financial access but with a strong need of food for soul, will have to establish new terms of evaluation for good food. Starting to appreciate, more than we do now, the excellence of a mackerel instead of that of a wild seabass might be an example. Some people have alreay started this. Among them, Daniel Rogov with his reviews of more economically accessible wines. For the rest, we'll try to catch by ourself a wild seabass.
