Some items would be considered of higher quality if made by hand. Fine violins and artistic pottery come to mind. But do I really want to consume food that was made by the hands of someone other than a person I intimately know?
Yes, I am sure the bakery workers of this reputable pita bread bakery wear latex gloves and funny hats. But I can only imagine Joseph telling his wife, “I have this tingle in my throat but I’ve missed already one too many days at work so I am going to go there anyhow. Ah-choo! God damn it, let me wipe this up my sleeve…”
What can I say, there are some objects, food definitely included, that I rather have made by a machine. R2-D2, where are you when I need you?!
