What's in a name?

Trinifood takes the debate to a higher level on her blog Can Cook, Must Cook.

She says quotes Tony Sewell, who wrote this about Roots in his weekly column for The Voice:

"On one level, some of us could say there is something a bit crass and stereotypical about a product called Reggae Reggae Sauce. However, I think this is a smart name, a wider audience can relate to this, a bit like Bob Marley’s Punky Reggae Party. Levi Roots has made his journey from the margins to the mainstream, he has done this and kept his integrity.”

What do you think? Has Trinifood made highlighted an important point? Is RRS really a statement from Levi's place on the margins? Is he bridging the gap between one man's passion and the machine that is Big Business? Has he brought a slice of Caribbean sunshine to Balham Sainsbury's?

Or has she just put too much music in her food?

If you read my post about Reggae, Reggae Sauce properly, you will see that I was quoting Tony Sewell, the columnist from The Voice Newspaper. I wasn't trying to diss Levi, since I have been very complimentary of his product, I merely said that I agree with Tony Sewell's views as some people might feel the way he does. I think you're also unfair in the way you're using the qoute as it goes on to say: "Levi Roots has made his journey from the margins to the mainstream, he has done this and kept his integrity".

I'm sorry, I jusr reread your post and I am also guilt of not reading, but I just wanted to make the point that I was quoting someone and you should have said that. The support for Levi Roots continues.
