Ozark Locavore: About Your Chicken… February 26, 2012

Posted by sandyclaus in Uncategorized.

The pilot episode of the comedy “Portlandia” sends up local foodies.

Two locavores start off in a restaurant and spend an interlude of several years on a farm. They begin this odyssey checking up on the resume of their chicken. In the name of humor they take locavore to an extreme, but this is a very real and growing motivation among consumers to know where their food comes from.

It also highlights the growing popularity of this term among the restaurant trade and among food reviewers.

More vendors want to let you know just where they get their food as well.

My Google Alerts on the word locavore have become noticeably more restaurant-oriented. At the same time, they have become more politicized.
