A Week of Food

Here’s something I was forwarded and saw posted helpfully at Green Taxi. Well worth looking at, not just for the differences in prices, but also in tastes (the number of bottles of coke are an interesting indicator, though quite what they indicate isn’t immediately obvious).

That’s it from Stuffed and Starved for 2007 – I’ll be back in 2008, though, with comment on the end of cheap food, and more of the latest food news. But thank you all for making 2007 a really splendid year.
