Chefs all around the country are committed to using local, organic ingredients in their dishes. In the first installment of Green Cuisine, the Union of Concerned Scientists profiles Nora Pouillon, owner of Restaurant Nora and Asia Nora in the nation's capital and local grower Jim Crawford of New Morning Farm and the Tuscarora Organic Growers Cooperative.
Check out Nora’s recipe for local and organic 10 tomato pasta. And see a slide show that covers an environmentally-friendly journey from farm to plate. UCS will be updating Green Cuisine every season with a new chef, a new farmer, a new recipe.
