How the Economy Will Be Good for Food


In looking at trends, you have to try to see both sides of an issue. One food blogger, Niall Harbison, recently gave his perspective in 5 Reasons the Recession is Good for Foodies. He said that restaurant standards will improve, new recipes will emerge, local produce will come into its own, young people will learn how to actually cook, and organic foods may actually come down in price.
