I spend a greater percentage of my income on food than most, but I still mostly buy steaks from local butcher or even supermarket, knowing I could have a Lobel Waygu strip for $90/lb. And it would be better. Just as with wine, economics is always part of the equation. Some of us just draw the line at different places. If you knew there was an even better -but just slightly- bread at $12 would you buy it?

It may be hard for we foodies to understand, but there are those out there who don't care about food, as long as their nutritional needs are met. To each his own. I care quite a bit about food, but I couldn't give a toss for clothes fashions. Yet I know people who insist on being nattily dressed and couldn't care less about what they eat.
