I Learned a New Word Today
I was schooled today by friends at Kinderhook Farm in Columbia County, New York on the definition of the word “locavore.” Apparently I am behind the times when it comes to the food scene.
A locavore is a person who’s diet consists mainly of locally grown and/or produced food, including meat, vegetables, and fruit.
Celebrity Chef Eddie G, who was visiting Kinderhook Farm, prepared a wonderful meal from local ingredients. He is currently developing a series focusing on the local food movement.
The grass fed beef, with a tangy mustard sauce, was from Kinderhook Farm, which also sells eggs, lamb, pork, and chickens at its farm store. The salad greens were locally grown.
Desert included apple cider doughnuts from Golden Harvest Farm in Valatie, New York.
Paired with great company, including one of my sisters and a millennial niece, the meal was delicious and a true endorsement to eating locally grown foods.
