A few days ago, Stonyfield Yogurt’s CE-“Yo” Gary Hirshberg breezed into Boston for a lunch with a group of Boston bloggies to talk about restoring balance in what we eat by looking at how foods are produced. The lunch was held at EVOO in Cambridge – a restaurant know to source locally for the ingredients in its dishes and a highly appropriate choice of venue for this event.
The lunch started off with all the bloggers introducing themselves to Gary (who was looking quite sun-kissed and bronzy. I wondered for a brief second if the tan was a spray-on, but I realized obviously it wasn’t cause the man lives and works on a farm and is all about organic living. Duh. Then I scolded myself for even thinking about such things during such a serious luncheon.)
I must commend Gary for his genuine passion for his product and his tireless effort in promoting the organic movement. I do see how everyone wins with organic, but the realistic (or maybe the pessimistic) part of me wonders if we will truly ever reach that utopia (cause organic is pricey and ummm…there is that pesky recession to think about). In the meantime, I will do my part and try to buy organic whenever I can (and readers – you should too!).
A thought provoking (and delicious) lunch for sure.
