California's Newest Business Craze: Homemade Food

See what deregulation does for the economy?  It unleashes the creative juices of people to improve their lives!!  But I wish the guy in the photo would wear a hair net.
Granola makers, homemade vinegar producers, and other foodies in California have cause to rejoice today. As of Jan. 1, a new state law allows people who make food at home to sell it to restaurants and grocery stores.

Leave it to California to upend decades of public health consensus that food businesses need commercial licenses to ensure their food is safe and free of harmful contaminants. The California Homemade Food Act creates a new category of food production called a “cottage food operation.”
