German Restaurant Offers Caveman Cuisine

Newton's law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

So in what seems like a reaction to the modernist/molecular gastronomic bombast of Ferran Adria and all his acolytes, there is a new restaurant in Berlin called Sauvage that serves caveman cuisine: food purportedly from the Paleolithic Age.
 
What does this mean exactly? The restaurant describes it as:

"organic, unprocessed foods and thus excludes every kind of processed foods, sprung from agriculture and domestication. Grains, starches, dairy products and sugar have no place on the paleolithic menu. The basic ingredients of paleo cooking are veggies, meat, fish, eggs, oils, nuts, seeds and herbs. All ingredients come from organic farming or wildlife."

Its dishes, which proudly omit bread, pasta and rice, are purported to give you limitless health benefits, including but not limited to immunity from colds and flus and, of course, a better sex drive. Because what's anything worth these days if it doesn't give you a better sex drive? . . .

Can dumpster diving for vittles be considered a modern version of hunting-gathering?

If the USA economy continues its descent into an economic netherworld I fear aging Baby Boomers such as I who spent a life-time performing the needed tasks the politicos now proclaim USA citizens will not do will be forced to devote time to obtaining a livable caloric input from USA's dumpsters.

I expect following generations to be forced into an economic quagmire as the USA relentlessly slides into a mostly two-level society; the haves and the hungry.

Its quite plausible that there were some chunk in the Paleo area. Look at the Venus figurines from that era and realize all the idealized women definitely have some spare change: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V...

You see...  I like this explanation better than the diet fad people who claim that the Paleo diet will make you skinny because there were no fat cavemen... I disputed that on two points. One how do you definitively know there were no fat cavemen? second, If I had to run around all day long with a spear and a rock trying to catch one rabbit to feed 3 or 4 people I'd be skinny too.

Paleo eating is less a culinary reaction to molecular gastronomy and more a health movement reacting against the terrible diet advice of the government and medical establishment. See the Ancestral Health Society, Mark's Daily Apple, etc.

If the cavemen had had the Internet, there'd have been tons of fat cavemen.
