looking fwd to season 2. im not in the industry, am just somewhat interested in food and cooking and the (sf) restaurant culture and biz. i like that your podcast seems to have struck the right balance with regards to being exclusive but not exclusionary. kind of like being allowed to sit adjacent to the cool-kids table.

there was some chat in the ryan farr podcast that reminded me of something ive been wondering about...i once went to a restaurant, ordered braised pork shoulder and was served a piece that was like 75% fat. but it was browned and crispy and really good. if this happened to you, would you be happy or sad? insulted? was the chef trying to pawn off a garbage cut, or was this an act of love?

tx again for the blog and podcast, just wanted to give props/feedback...

Thanks for addressing my question about chefs & sustainable agriculture. Sorry about the long Email! I was asking if you guys would ever accept non-organic, genetically-modified/engineered crops if they were somehow made to be environmentally & socially sustainable in the future (no pesticides, less water demand, etc). I think Ginger answered, "I think we should do the right thing whatever it is".
