SLOW U - "The Hundred Mile Diet" w Author James MacKinnon
When the average North American sits down to dine, each ingredient typically has travelled 1,500 mile to his or her plate. In 2005, James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith chose to confront this unsettling statistic. For one year, they enjoyed food and drink originating no more than 100 miles from their Vancouver home. And so was born The Hundred Mile Diet.
James will talk about his adventure in sustainability. And while you consider the culinary challenges of The Hundred Mile Diet, you will enjoy local farmstead and artisan cheeses, assembled by Anne Saxelby of Saxelby Cheesemongers, accompanied by local beverages, you guessed it, all of which will have been produced within one hundred miles of your listening, eating, and drinking.
