My name is Michael Greenberg, and I am passionate about food: growing it, making it, eating it.  I can’t remember when I started changing what I bought and consumed, but by Spring of 2011, I’d made a decision: I was going to eat smug, especially where animals were concerned.  I want to eat food and feel smug about it, I want to eat food that was smug itself.  I want local, organic, pastured, Ivy League-educated chickens.  And I don’t mean fake Ivies, like Dartmouth.

I respect those who go further in their dietary ethics: vegetarians, vegans, lithotrophs.  But that’s not where I’m at, and—for me—consistency isn’t everything.  I’m not interested in starting a conversation about which food ethics are best; I’m interested in starting a conversation about food.

You can discover my nerdy side or my academic side, if you’re into that sort of thing.
