Farm to fork cuisine. When you go to a restaurant, do you think about where your food is coming from? Does it matter to you that the food is straight from the farm or even organic? Granted, sometimes we are so hungry that no food within our field of radar is safe, so we may not be thinking of its nutritional value. In reality, by taking a few seconds to think about what you’re putting in your body, you not only benefit yourself physically but you help local farmers and restaurant owners who are making available healthier options. Farm to fork cuisine is popping up in more restaurants, especially in California. Restaurants are hearing the cries of guests wanting organic options and a better quality of food. Menus are changing and local food markets and farmers are receiving a higher demand for farm fresh produce.
One restaurant in Modesto, California is on board with “farm to fork cuisine”, and believe me they are doing it right! For the past few years Greens has been delivering not only farm fresh food, but also organic options. Greens offers an appetizing menu like many restaurants claim to do. The difference setting them apart is that what their guests are eating was recently picked or harvested from the owner’s 8 acre organic farm. Fresh greens, cabbage, kale, spinach, and a variety of root and summer vegetables are a regular in the restaurant. The beauty in this is that you can rarely eat the same thing twice.
