Your Disaffections

Recommended Posts

Dear Sirs,




Being in a pinch to prepare for a small gathering for the NFC Championship game, I swallowed hard and paid $21.00 in your Madison Ave, store for French sea salt you put in your own Mean & Deluxe small glass jars. It’s one thing to greatly overpay for one of nature’s products, but another for you not to promulgate a word on the origin of the salt. Is it from, say, Ile de Re, Ile d’Orleon, the Aquitane Coast, the Camargue,etc. For all I know you poured it out of one of those tall cardboard boxes of French sea salt you buy in a supermarket in France for five Euros or so. Regardless, it is salt--nothing more, nothing less and a blatant example of what I call the “presciousization” of food. If you would tell me in specific terms what it is that I overpaid for, I would greatly appreciate it.




With thanks,




Robert Brown
