The best lack all conviction while the worst...

Handmade, artisan foods don't mean worth eating:
Serious eaters should not and cannot assume that just because something is handmade or homemade by someone with the best of intentions that it's going to be good. And that means the disappointment we feel when we taste it will be that much more profound, via Ed Levine.
The same has been said about growing heirloom tomatoes, the socalled pug of the vegetable kingdom, which aren't necessarily better because of their genetic purity, via SciAm.

The article on heirloom tomatoes is crap. This guy has no idea what he is talking about.

Well......actually, from what I understand, science isn't "opinion". So, he probably DOES have some idea about what he is talking about. Ergo, the article isn't crap. Heirlooms are.

"Just because a conscientious, responsible pig farmer decides to make bacon, or just because a talented chef with good intentions decides he's going to make his own salumi, doesn't mean the bacon or salumi is going to be good"

And in other news, the sky is blue.

Besides, tomatoes are fruit, not vegetables

Anonymous (if that's your real name), his "science" as you call it is chock-full of inaccuracies, fallacies, and alligience to corporate farming methods that decrease genetic plant diversity and serve Monsanto's bottom line. You should learn to recognize a "scientific" article that has a corporate sponsor. C'mon.
