This morning Tanny heard a story on CBC (Metro Morning, Toronto) about local eating. The host interviewed Jamie Kennedy. Link to the audio file is here. Let us know if it expires. UPDATE: The link has expired - thanks Laurel!
Here’s the gist of it:
Jane and Jamie discussed the local eating movement in the Toronto area, focussed mainly on the restaurant owner’s perspective. Jamie partnered with Thermador and worked with local growers to film vignettes showing his take on local eating and how you prepare a winter feast using locally grown produce. Jamie is currently working with local growers to set up a chefs’ wholesale market at Evergreen Brickworks to make local produce more accessible to restaurants. He hopes that by allowing the growers connect directly with the end users, the prices of local produce would become affordable for more people. There’s a new winter farmers market in Toronto - Green Barn Farmer’s Market at Wychwood Heights.
