My good friends at CBC Edmonton are starting a new series next week on the whole concept of eating local. It’s loosely based on the 100-mile diet, where you buy or gather all your food within 100 miles of where you live.
Two Vancouver writers did that for a year and turned it into a very successful book.
It looks like my friend and former chef Ivor Mackay will be taking his family on the 100-mile diet for a year and will be keeping a blog and posting recipes along the way.
There will be stories on an organic mill, the debate over organic certification in Alberta and a primer on Edmonton’s local markets. You can check out all the radio and TV programming here.
