Local Hawaii ingredients used with an international flair
Saturday, December 08, 2007
Now, what does a dedicated locavore do when bad weather wipes out local crops? KCC Farmers' Market this morning was missing some anchor vendors. MA`O Organic Farm was not there. Other vendors had only a limited selection. Clearly, last week's bad weather has taken its toll.
So a dedicated locavore will just buy something else local, and go with the flow. It's important to continue supporting local farmers by buying what they do have right now.
Of course, the supermarket shelves will still be stocked with greens, veggies and other products brought in from distant places, even distant countries. This is the test of the locavore. To resist the temptation of foreign kale, of distant asparagus. To make sure that local farmers still have some income while they deal with the weather crisis.
By "Locavore's Dilemma" I was, of course, referencing Omnivore's Dillema, the must-have book by Michael Pollan, now available in affordable paperback.
The book is about far more than eating locally, but that's part of it. From the Amazon review page:
Now that the already classic book is available in paperback, it's one you can't afford not to have.
