Voice of the Restaurant Industry
I ADORE anything local. From Farmer's Market Restaurants to local bee keepers that sell the best honey you've ever tasted! Having a grandfather who grew everything we ate, I have a deep appreciation for farmers and people who grow or make foods.
On a recent vacation to Vermont, my love for local business was reignited, inspiring me to involve local foods whenever possible. An early breakfast at a local diner involved the most amazing maple syrup (as if it was tapped straight from the tree and onto my plate!) Worth it's weight in gold, I can't get this gorgeous state's delicious foods out of my mind.
From the hand pressed apple cider to the home grown coffee that makes you look forward to getting up in the morning, home grown and local foods are becoming more and more popular in restaurants. In a time when everyone is busy and most families rarely sit down to eat together, uniting people with foods that good for you and appreciated, it's no wonder as to why so many restaurants are going local. Thank you Vermont!
