Joy of Going Local

Knowledge of where our food comes from is becoming easier these days, along with sourcing ingredients as local as possible. Good recently shared a nice infographic in this vein, helping to illuminate ways to have a 100-mile Thanksgiving. But what if your meal was literally in your yard? A new video series, The Perennial Plate, shares the endearing story of a Japanese man doing just that with Udon noodles – he grows the wheat on his farm, then serves it up in delicious form at his neighboring restaurant. He puts love into the whole process, stating, “If happiness spreads from what I am doing, I am happy.”

Happy Thanksgiving!
