      “Real food! Real food! Real veggies, real fruit!”Imagine - food created in a lab that is healthy, safe and won't make you fat.Marty remembers the great glass houses they passed on their way to Lucban, lining the fields stretched beneath Mt. Banahaw. Piles of corn and rice, endless rows of pineapple and root crop, stewing in their meticulously engineered domes, more delicious than nature could ever make them. Simply more than God could ever make them.Would you even miss the real stuff?Aling M [...]

      Sci-fi or fantasy? Probably both. I can even say that this story explores "sci-fi vs. fantasy" concept. What would you choose: a calculated bio engineered miracle or a crazy religious miracle with unknown origins. I think I would choose science, because look at the festival, it's wild and even barbaric. It's about a crowd of people who become ecstatic with the "natural" food. I am scared of such crowds. Of course, there are some problems with engineered food from one resource, but if it's safe, [...]

      I got too caught up in the (I'm guessing) tagalog to really enjoy the story. It took me three tries to realize that Mang Kikoy is some sort of hired hand - more than a butler but not family. And Marty's actual family (besides his wife and children) are conspicuously absent, despite his stated desire to see them. Regardless of that, the notion of all of our food being replaced by bioengineered millet is not all that sci-fi. But I find it highly unlikely that *everything* will be replaced eventual [...]

      This short story would fit perfectly in a (Windup Girl) Paolo Bacigalupi's anthology because of its themes and its plot. It is set in a future where all the food is lab grown and lab produced. Then, one day, something unexpected starts occurring: during a religious procession, the lab grown food is turned into the real one. The "miracle" deeply shakes the faith in science of Marty, and brings up back long forgotten memories from his childhood.An interesting read, I am looking forward reading mor [...]

      Interesting short about a future where no natural foods are available and have been substituted by engineered food which is almost, but not quite, as good as the real thing. The action takes place during a traditional festival in the Philippines. My only complaint is that it is quite confusing, at least to begin with, provably due to my lack of knowledge about the culture in the Philippines, but a bit more inobstrusive explanation would have gone a long way in improving the story.

      A quick and focused look at human reactions to food politics in the future. How would people feel about "real" food when we have access to perfectly safe, expertly balanced, manufactured food? Is artificial something we can easily get behind? Throw in some unexplained miracles and you have the beginnings of an interesting story. I would love to see this one expanded into a novel.

      The story gives an interesting look at food in the future. Real food, with all its health issues, vs. vat-grown totally-safe artificial stuff.
