Today’s consumer is constantly being bombarded with conflicting messages. There is a strong push towards a more healthy lifestyle: reduce fat, reduce cholesterol, reduce carbohydrates, increase vitamin intake, increase anti-oxidants, eat natural, eat organic …

Who’s the good chef and who’s the bad chef? It’s up to you to decide!
