I saw Jamie Oliver talking some time back about young kids not knowing what certain foods are when they see them. Look, if a teenager can't id a rutabaga, or a Noni, I would understand. But this....

Me in line at reg in my local BigY market: Hi

Cashier (late teens): Hi, how are you?

Me: Fine, ty.

Cashier: Umm, what are theses?

Me: Red potatoes

No time to teach that in HS because they were preparing for college. They'll probably get to potatoes in grad school.

Yep...I've had young teens working the checkout ask me what basil is, cilantro, leeks, celery root, ginger and a whole bunch more. If I have one that asks what basil is, I invite them to give it a smell and watch as their faces light up. :)
