Living the slow life… one day at a time

Local Dining Challenge?

leave a comment »

We’re always on the lookout for interesting and innovative ideas from other groups in other parts of the country or other parts of the world that we can steal borrow. Michael over at Local Matters pointed us toward an interesting website — another Slow Food convivium with an even more local focus — that got us thinking. One of the things they did was challenge the local restaurants to offer one dish on the menu that was made entirely from ingredients that came from within 200 miles (with what they called “Marco Polo exceptions” for things like spices, salt, and olive oil) during the month of June.

Interesting thought. The time might be a little short, but I wonder how much interest there would be in doing something like that here?
