A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
I live in Minneapolis, where eating lots of local food is not at all strange. Many of my neighbors are CSA members, and we have been known to share ingredients, recipes, and restaurant recommendations. On my block, nearly everyone seems to know how to cook kale and how to grow tomatoes. It's easy for me to think that this is normal. It isn't.
In the past two weeks, I've had the opportunity to attend two events focused on good food. Both were excellent, and left lasting impressions.
