Adults Eat Peanut Butter!

Amanda Marcotte confesses: American Thai food is really a way for adults to eat peanut butter without shame:

Food, fear, meandering commentary at Pandagon: I make an awesome Pad Thai. I don't make it with peanut oil. I use... peanut butter. If you use peanut oil like you're supposed to, for some reason it doesn't taste as peanut-y as it should.... Most people like the way I make it, but mentioning this in a public forum brings upon me the cringe of shame....

The reason I bring this up is because I was all excited about this interview in Salon with Barry Glassner about some of the fear and morality issues that have cropped up on food politics and why they skew people's priorities.... I wanted to see what Glassner would say about the search of authenticity in food, because I think in a lot of ways such a search is both doomed and can be intimidating to people who are learning to cook.
