Trying desperately to organize the thousands of files on my computer, I came across a folder from my previous job in Saratoga Springs. In it were half dozen or so blog posts I wrote for local city guide websites. My first blog post ever? “Slow Food- Eat Local.” While the post has long since expired on its original website, I happened to find the screen shot from our fan page on facebook and thought it was rather relevant to share on Nella.
If I were to edit the same post today, there’s not too many things I would change, but to add Gracie’s Restaurant in Providence to the list. In fact, there are dozens more specialty stores, farmer’s markets and restaurants dedicated to using local foods that have sprung up over the last couple years. If you’re still not convinced of the benefits of local food, watch Food, Inc now available in the “watch instantly” section on Netflix.
We have a VERY exciting week ahead and will report back on Sunday with a full write-up of our special event on Saturday and the week’s worth of prep-work leading up to the event.
