Slow Food or Flying Pickles?

Seems like we in the U.S.are not the only ones with a confused, global food supply.

This short story from PRI's The World tells the tale of cornichons imported from India, and French cucumber farmers caving in to the new arrangement and losing a long standing tradition.

One of the dilemmas posed here seem particularly telling: If you are what you eat, but you don't know what you are eating, what happens to your identity?
