Restaurants Go On the Hundred Mile Diet: Harvest Restaurant
What a remarkable meme it is- from nowhere two years ago (well, actually from Alissa Smith and JB Mackinnon in Vancouver) to what is now almost a movement, the idea of the hundred mile diet has taken hold. At some times of year and in certain areas it is easier than others- renowned chef Michael Potters is doing it in his new restaurant in Prince Edward County, Ontario. "moving to the country has provided Michael with a deeper connection to the land and the seasons, enabling him to source more products locally". He offers a hundred mile dinner, paired with the new locally grown (and getting better) wines. He even names the farmers on his website. Hold a table, we're coming soon. ::Harvest sloooow flash website if you are on dialup- why do people do this in a vacation area where so many people are?
