Art You Eat #3: Go Local!

Many thanks once again to all of you who voted me as winner of Art You Eat #2: Eggs! And as the lucky winner, I had the honor of choosing the theme for the next event.

In honor of Earth Day this year, the theme for the third Art You Can Eat event is: Go Local.

We invite you to think of this month's theme as an opportunity to highlight the best of locally-grown, sustainable* produce. Let's discover a world of delicious food that can be made with fruit and vegetables grown nearby--even in your own backyard! That means your main ingredient(s) should be in season and grown as locally as possible for your climate/region.

And since many people are in climates that have not yet yet entered their growing season, this challenge is extended to include local products. Head on over to Holly's Art You Eat for all the details.

*There's quite a bit of discussion these days about sustainable food sources--but what does that mean? Eating more locally-grown fruit and vegetables reduce the amount of food that needs to be imported from other areas. That means less fuel used to get your food from the farm to your door. And that's a good thing.
