LORIKAE

I am an artisan baker and deli manager at a local food cooperative here in ciudad de Las Cruces. I basically taught myself to cook once I first moved out of my parents' house and into my own apartment at university...that was about 10 years ago.

I believe that people have extreme power when they hold a fork in their hand, and the food choices that they make can make waves, globally. People come together over food, but it is also an essential part of being. The food choices people make affect many lives, including their own, their families', those of migrant workers and those in other countries, those of the farmer and the animal...if people really THINK about what they are putting on their plates, think of WHO they are affecting, then the WORLD may be able to come together over food. It sounds cheesy, but just think about it for a minute - the power you have...
