If you read this blog or know me from my work or personal life, you know I love nothing more than using local and natural foods when cooking. I believe that these kinds of food are the real “good stuff.”
I wanted to spend a few minutes recognizing our Sportservice chefs at Miller Park who played a big role in helping put together Farm Aid’s 25th annual benefit concert. They served more than 30,000 people using mostly foods that were grown right in the state of Wisconsin.
I didn’t attend the event as I’ve been busy, busy, busy but one of my fellow chefs told me they served hamburgers, buns, pulled pork sandwiches, pizza, gourmet wraps and popcorn that was all produced nearby. Other items on the menu were caramel apples, muffins, and fresh cider from local orchards.
Farm Aid is a benefit concert that raises money for family farmers and helps people recognize the value in local produce. I’m happy that Delaware North helps with this event from time to time.
All I’m saying is that whether you’re preparing a five-star gourmet meal or making burgers for sports fans, it’s always good to use local foods. Now, all this talk of foods is making me hungry. I will blog again soon.
In Good Cooking Always,
Chef Roland Henin, CMC
