Every chef knows the best way to improve your cooking: buy better ingredients. One of the best ways to do that is to buy fresh ingredients. Local Harvest is the web’s number one reference for people who are looking for fresh food. It’s simple — food that comes from far away spends days in a warehouse or on a truck before it hits your table. There is no substitute for food that is picked, sold, and cooked that day. Find local farms, co-ops, news on which produce is in season, and goings-on in your local community. The site will also teach you how buying local improves the local economy and helps the environment. It can even improve your health; did you know that eating local honey is believed to help with allergies? Pick from your local harvest and wow friends and family with your cooking.
