Be sure to check out Sound Food’s Quick Start Guide to Local Eating. It’s an organized, accumulated list that can make it easier for you to source your dinner (and lunch and breakfast and snacks…) locally.
The distribution system hasn’t quite caught up with all of this local abundance, so buying it isn’t as easy as walking into your neighborhood supermarket. You need to know where to look. “Think local first” is the mantra. Start by looking for what you need close to home. If you can’t find it there, expand your radius a bit and find what you can as close to home as possible. -Sound Food website
Also in this month’s newsletter, I provide some nifty ways to turn that random summer produce that is accumulating in your refrigerator drawers (and on your countertops, and on your porch…) into delicious dinners.
