Blog Spotlight: The Local Beet Chicago
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.
