Eating local in Chicago just got a little easier with a new web resource: The Local Beet.
Featuring some founding members of the restaurant discussion site LTHForum, The Local Beet covers local eating topics in Chicago and beyond.
Check out some highlights below ...
Some current features and posts on the site include:
- A guide to foraging for lamb's quarters (it's a leaf, by the way)
- A tribute to Green City Market founder Abby Mandel, who passed away last week
- Thoughts on eating local forever
- A discussion on local sources for Halal meat
One thing you probably won't find at The Local Beet? The word "locavore." Founder Michael Morowitz isn't a fan, and espouses a "less completist and more practical" approach. Sounds about right to us.
