What if chefs offered a week of  dinners on different local farms? It could be a seasonal affair that would draw people in for a unique dining experience!

Raja commented on Dine n' Dash

Thanks Aparna! I grew up in Pakistan where I often had farm fresh veggies, eggs, and milk available and you can taste the difference! I penned another concept http://www.openideo.com/open/localfood/concepting/top-chef-hunter-gatherer-edition
that incorporates your comments about having celeb chefs and community gardens. I think it would be great to have chefs make meals at community gardens too though- how fun to walk around the city and get a farm fresh meal!

Would it be better to stamp things "not local"?
No Local can sound like a protest against local foods.
