Blog: Homemade versus Home-cooked
Catherine Sleep | 17 October 2006
Over some pub grub yesterday lunchtime a colleague made me aware of a legal difference she believes exists between the terms ‘homemade’ and ‘home-cooked’. The former must, she believes, be prepared from scratch on a restaurant premises, while the latter needs simply be heated up after being offloaded off the catering service’s truck.
Somehow the distinction has passed me by, but it rings true. Does anyone know if it has legal standing? Answers to the usual place, please.
Another term with which I’m unfamiliar is equitrade, short for equitable trading. It’s similar to fairtrade, but means that a greater proportion of the ‘added value’ of a product is generated in the source country, for example by a whole chocolate bar being manufactured in a developing country, rather than the raw cocoa being exported and the rest of the work being done elsewhere.
