U.S. Food Policy TV (episode 1): the pleasures of home-made food and drink

U.S. Food Policy is experimenting with video. This post is really the second attempt at a video blog post (readers using RSS feeds, please forgive us).

Episode 1 is about the September Eat Local Challenge.

I love it! That was great --- I really admire and appreciate your effort.

Interesting isn't it -- how quickly we forget the way things used to be. I was at a yoga retreat a couple weeks ago and one of my fellow practitioners raised the issue of seasonality and how we have only recently come to expect fresh fruits and vegs of all type to be in the store year round. I had completely forgotten that there was a time when that was not the case! And I was raised on a farm with a Mom that canned produce and made our own jam -- think of the ignorance on such matters amongst those who never had such experiences. It's sad...

You've (almost) inpired me to go home and can! ;-)

I was very impressed with your post--the challenge of buying locally is daunting to many consumers because they have been "trained" not to think in those terms. Your work on the U.S. Food Policy site should go a long way in helping folks see the beautiful potential of buying local foods. Thanks again for a great post, chefjp
