Artisan Food

Why is everything labeled "artisan" lately? I have seen this on salads, breads, cheeses...What exactly is this supposed to mean?

  • Basically, it means you will pay mor money for it. It originally meant a small batch producer who took extra care to make a special product, but now it is a meaningless word.

  • Well, the Taste Council definition is:
    Artisan Food is defined as a superior tasting food, which commands a higher price in its category. Superior taste is achieved through food making skill
