Chef Bob Villeneuve will also be doing a talk all about eating local. Eating local isn’t as uncomplicated as you might think. In the days of global shipping, on-line shopping and multinational food companies, knowing where your food comes from and how to support local agriculture can be a real challenge. From imported strawberries at the farmers market to locally grown produce at your superstore, take a few minutes to explore how you can eat locally from both big and small food producers, why it’s important to your local community and why the people you cook for will thank you.
