We’ve been doing some reflecting on the way that we qualify food. Does feeding your family good and clean foods make you a better parent? A better steward of the environment? An overall better person? And if not, what’s the point of labeling food good or bad, clean or dirty? We dig into some of these questions and explore why doing so as the family cook might be important to the people we feed.
