I’d like to introduce a new blogger we have at LocalFoody: Anne, writer and lover of good food.
A native Montrealer, Anne has happily stopped comparing her new town, Toronto, to other places, and is busy gettin’ down and dirty with the real-food renaissance that is unfolding right here.
But no matter where you are, the quality and variety of available local foods is growing. Combine this with the new pride in eating local, in going to farmer’s markets, in knowing where your food comes from and how it got to your plate, and you’ve got a delicious (… and nutritious!) food revolution.
Anne wants us to connect with good local food. She is not a chef, nor a gourmet. She is however a registered holistic nutritionist who knows her way around “good food” and why it’s good for us. (But she promises not to be a self-righteous nutrition freak about it.)
She will be writing about what’s going on in eating local, issues affecting production and distribution, the farmers, the markets, the food itself, and the eaters of it — which is all of us.
So let’s welcome Anne as she explores with us the evolving landscape of eating local, and helps us connect with the fuel and the flavours we want.
What’s most important to you when looking for organic and local food? What would you love to be able to find that you can’t? How do you decide where to shop or what restaurants to eat at? How can LocalFoody help you solve those problems? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
Just a quick note to let you know that you can now sign up for our LocalFoody Beta list. Just go to our Beta site and tell us a bit about yourself, and we’ll send you an invite when the Beta is ready to go. We plan to work closely with our Beta testers to ensure the site is great and meets your needs. There are no strings attached and of course the site will be free to use. Again that’s http://beta.localfoody.net.
Thanks for your support!
