Local Dining…Is It Winning?

Quick post today…

Are you dining locally?  Are you dining locally at locally owned restaurants which use locally sourced produce and meats?  Are you keeping your family dollars flowing into the larger family of your local economy?  Take a hard look at yourself.  Take a look around you.  Do your friends and co-workers strive to rep local, or are they stuck on the chain gang?

Wait, what?  You didn’t know that dining locally doesn’t necessarily mean that you are eating local products?  This is true, and a sad truth at that.  How can you tell that you are getting legitimate, local food?  Ask questions.  Get informed.  Call the restaurant and ask (politely) what local products they use and from what purveyors.  Ask your server.  Ask food professionals and/or food bloggers.  But Get To Know Your Food and Rep Local.

Dining locally isn’t winning unless you are really getting local foods.  Truth.
