Sometimes the foodie community is perceived as being elitist, and if we all had ample amounts of money to spend on fresh and local food, it would be easier to pay attention to where our food comes from, and perhaps to buy mostly organic food if so desired.
Chef Lisa Schroeder who is no stranger to good food has a little different take on the matter. Schroeder believes that just home cooked meals using whole ingredients is an important step up from eating at a restaurant. Any restaurant.
This may not seem all that surprising a viewpoint, but consider, she is chef and owner of her own restaurant, and though she serves home style meals, she knows first-hand the pleasures and the benefits of cooking at home.
