Lunch Room Chatter: The organic sell-out

By Tim Carman

The latest in food news, ideas and philosophy, just in time for your lunch break.

* Today's required reading: "The main reason, however, why Whole Foods is pleading for coexistence with Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, Syngenta, BASF and the rest of the biotech bullies, is that they desperately want the controversy surrounding genetically engineered foods and crops to go away. Why? Because they know, just as we do, that 2/3 of WFM's $9 billion annual sales is derived from so-called 'natural' processed foods and animal products that are contaminated with GMOs." (HuffPo)

* Young men in need of a chew out. (WaPo)

* A woman's place is in (designing) the kitchen. (New York Review of Books)

* Skip Philadelphia. Go straight to your kitchen. (Copykat)

* "Alas, I would rather eat an actual armadillo than some of the peculiar items that out-of-staters seem to think represent 'authentic' Texas cuisine." (Dallas Morning News)

* Americans will revolt only when the price of a caramel macchiato surpasses $10. (NPR)

* Who knew? Flav has real flavor. (Eater)

* Sustainable seafood? Not so much. (Chow)
