What’s in your artisanal arsenel?

Blog Guy, I’m confused. Suddenly I’m seeing the words “artisan” and “artisanal” attached to all kinds of products. Cheeses, chocolates, liquors, soaps… What does it all mean?

That’s easy. It means they can get by with charging a lot more money for that stuff.

Oh yes, I’m bitterly aware these artisanal items carry hefty price tags.  This whole upscale artisan thing has me tempted to just steal the stuff, or maybe burn down the shops.

Careful ace, you’re looking at artisan larceny arson there.

That’s easy for you to say. So you’re buying into this whole artisan craze?
