Podcast: Victor Sasson’s “Do You Really Know What You’re Eating?”


victorsasson by you.

Victor Sasson’s Do You Really Know What You’re Eating? Blog has a focused mission on finding the best chemical and additive-free meat, fish and produce in Northern New Jersey.

When most people retire, they play golf, they go to the Senior Center, they join Facebook and post pictures of their grandchildren, they crochet, or they do various things that don’t involve actual work. Not Victor Sasson.

I’ve known Victor for a number of years, and before he retired from a long career as a professional journalist only about a year ago, he was a food writer  for the Bergen Record. Now, like a travelling culinary rogue, he hunts down the very best places to buy groceries and meat and fish and all sorts of things in Northern New Jersey for you to cook at home, with a focus on natural, organic,  hormone and chemical-free foods. Victor has only been blogging since late March, but he’s already amassed over 50 posts on various shopping venues in the local Bergen County/North Jersey area. It’s going to take me a while to catch up.

I recently had a chance to meet up with Victor over lunch at Whole Foods in Paramus’  Bergen Mall. Click Here to listen to Victor and I talk about the changing New Jersey restaurant scene, and his love for Middle Eastern and Korean cuisines.

    …with poisonous chemicals and pollution EVERYWHERE in Northern New Jersey, “food” is the least of our worries.

  7. Food is the least of your worries?

    Over what do you have control? Pollution? Yes, you can buy a hybrid car to cut pollution, but what you eat is the one area over which you have the most control.

    What you eat contributes immeasurably to your feeling of well-being. Why do you call yourself dog? Not much of a self-image, I guess. Do you eat like an animal, too, gobbling up just about anything that is put before you? Dog, indeed.
