Catching up on my reading after traveling toKennedySpaceCenterfor the final shuttle launch, I found two very interesting articles from Fast Company that should intrigue other chefs and those who care about their food.
The first discusses a new technology that allows you to see not just where your seafood comes from, but also to connect with the fisherman who caught it – all with the snap of your phone’s camera. This is another example of how people can be more informed on where their food is coming from and where it’s been. Chefs will need to work harder to understand this as well to best serve customers.
The second article touches upon whether or not the local food movement can continue to grow into a truly profitable venture or if it will just become a fad. I’d encourage everyone to read this and share their thoughts. How do you feel about the local food movement?
