  1. I cook because I control who handles my food, Hep A, B, and C are prevalent with food handlers here in California….

  2. On the flip side, I’ve noticed a trend in home baking, gardening (growing your own), and people generally getting better at preparing their own food. There’s also a growing mistrust of what’s being served (though not as much in so-called fine dining). I prefer my own cooking because it’s better, it’s fresher and I can control what’s in it. :)
