When Eatocracy launched in mid-June of this year, we knew we had a lot to say about how, why, where when and what people across the United States are eating. What took us by surprise and delight was the passionate response from readers who had a thing or ten (or 76,000+ if we're keeping track of comments stats) to say about hot button topics like vegetarianism, genetically modified food, open bars, school lunches and restaurant etiquette.
Here's a sampler platter of topics that stirred the pot this year. Consider it your amuse bouche for all the food fun we'll serve up in 2011.
