The Los Angeles Times today reported on how L.A. Unified rebuffed celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, marking what may be the only time I have ever agreed with L.A. Unified on any matter of policy ever.
But, lest we think we're immune from such silliness, welcome to the city of trees and Ph.Ds, the city of Claremont:
Rick Cota, director of nutrition services for the Claremont Unified School District, told Oliver that he'd like to open his kitchens to him.
"Claremont is a community that is all over good health and sustainable practices, so we're on the same page with the goals for our program," Cota said later.Sorry, but we shouldn't fall for the latest food craze, as this Reason.tv video makes all too clear. It is Claremont's supposed commitment to "good health" and "sustainable practices" -- whatever those are -- that explains why the voters so decisively rejected increased spending on the schools.
