Holding a brown lunch bag in each hand, one of Lodi's premier chefs said the contents of one bag represent what food is and the other shows what is wrong with it. He opened the bags. One featured a fresh Russet potato. The second bag contained a carton of McDonald's french fries.

Before a crowd of 70 winemakers, farmers and foodies at cellardoor Monday night, Ruben Larrazolo, owner of Alebrijes Mexican Bistro, said the fast-food item is a luxury. Although the fries are inexpensive, Larrazolo said their lack of nutritional value and immediate availability hurts the appreciation for real food. The American culture widely sees food as only something that satisfies a craving, he said.
