    Fake Virgins and Fishy Fish

    Two disturbing articles about the food that we think that we're eating not being what we think it is:

    I buy California olive oil when I want the good stuff, a few select vineyards also grow and produce excellent olives for oil.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    That's why I've been buying whole fish directly from the distributor and olive oil from here:

    O Live Brooklyn is owned by my sister and BIL. They're militant -almost to the point of annoyance- about exposing the fakes and selling genuine excellent quality oils and balsamics. Gotta say the stuff they carry is great and if there's interest I'll arrange some sort of a discount for KKF members.

    Kinda funny this article on the escolar. Not really funny, but to me is, here's why: We have been joking at work recently that anyone who acts like an ass has to eat 8oz of escolar as a punishment. We saw it in our distributors stock list, and thought it was funny.

    Really it's not, very sad that this still goes on, after countless times it has been exposed throughout the food distribution world. As bad as distributors passing horse off as beef, which has been a trend lately
