It is true that we enjoy American foods, but would you believe me when I say that the new menu trend for 2011 is "going local". Nutritionists are advising that we eat more farm grown foods and less processed foods. The best organic foods are the ones grown closest to you.
According to Nation's Restaurant News, partner with NRA, locally sourced meats and seafood and locally grown produce ranked as the number one menu trends, with a whopping 86% of chefs naming them as key movements in the food industry. (Katie Robbins www.delish.com/food). People worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket and that means it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for your local economy--buying directly from family farmers helps them stay in business.
So farmers pull out your ploughs and work those fields as your sales are expected to rise for the upcoming year 2011.
