I went for the first time in years into the Whole Foods on San Vicente in Brentwood, in search of a good caprese. I found no caprese whatsoever. And it then ocurred to me that Whole Foods is just as phony as the people who shop there. Whole Foods is billed as being something of a willingly highfalutin establishment for rather discerning, well-informed consumers.

Ha!

Ha ha!

Ha ha ha!

No caprese? Are you kidding? Caprese is a fresh and healthy snack affording just enough savoriness to be consumed in its own right, but not so overwhelming as to not be an excellent choice to compliment a nice glass of one of the lighter reds, such as cabernet sauvignon (that's a type of wine, in case one of you domestic beer drinkers were wondering). Or, if you prefer, dip a bit in red vinegar. Olive oil on the side is fine as well.

But no, Whole Foods did not have caprese. They did, however, have box after box of sushi. Really? Sushi? What decade is it? I thought sushi went out with The Pet Shop Boys and Miami Vice.

What a sad little joke of a grocery market. Whole Foods? More like Whole Fools. Whole Foods is the sort of store people shop at who want to have high culture, but they actually do not and wouldn't know high culture if it landed on the hood of their Prius and said hello.

How pathetic.

How dare you! Sushi will NEVAH go out of style. It's the blue jeans of food - there will always be a demand for it.

Ok, I'll bite. What in the world is a fascade? Is that like an arcade in a grocery store or something?
