Today more and more people are becoming concerned with where the food they eat comes from. A big movement for eating local makes this easier to trace. There are so many reasons for eating local and each person may be on board for one or all of these reasons.
Eating local cuts down our carbon footprint. As big food scares are traced to factory farming, eating local and knowing the origin of your food makes more sense. Treatment of animals and laborers is of concern to many.
The fun and delicious part may be what attracts even more people. Locally grown food is fresher, tastier and more nutritious. Working with local farmers and farmers’ markets brings a sense of community that our busy world has taken further away.
Chef Linda Jacobs’ early days of cooking started at the same time she had her first vegetable garden. Nothing is more rewarding to her than putting a seed in the ground and following each step, which ends in placing a plate in front of an ecstatic guest.
The movement for local sustainable foods and local farmers’ markets is bringing this passion to reality. Soup to Nuts concentrates on cooking and making your party perfect. Starting with just picked produce, conscientiously raised meats and dairy of local farmers enables us to prepare food at its very best.
