Why is it important to eat local?

“My son had me read a book that answers these questions in a wonderfully informed and poetic way. It is titled Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and written by the well-known author Barbara Kingsolver. But in a nutshell it is community building, health insuring, flavor giving and…very valuable. It keeps the texture, language, idiosyncrasies and PERSONALITY of our nations distinct and ever intriguing!”

– Chef Norman Van Aken, Tuyo in Miami, Florida
