I just read a local fine dining place’s menu. They are proud of their local ingredients, and list them in their menu. Great. Props. Yet far more than half their mains include meats that by necessity spend a heck of a lot of time on a truck to get here: alligator, halibut, blue crabs, prawns, calamari. Come on. If you’re going to take pride in serving local food, serve local food. Not because you’re fiercely regionally proud – but because it means the products will be fresher. And the more you support local producers, the better the network of producers will become. I’d rather eat a simple pork dish, fresh, done well, than a novel alligator main sourced from florida. Oh yeah. I keep forgetting. I’m not their target client.
