With the rising price of fuel and the threat of climate change looming like a thundercloud on the horizon there are plenty of reasons to eat locally grown produce. First nations thrived for unnumbered generations on our fertile coast before pineapples were ever flown in from Hawaii at New Years. So we've accepted the challenge to find our food!
On the menu this week:
Fresh Dungeness and Red Rock Crab from Cadboro Bay!
Wild Coho salmon from Sooke!
Coon-Stripe Shrimp from Caddy Bay!
Chantrelles and Bolete mushrooms from the forest!
Harvest vegetables from the garden and apples from the trees!
Eating locally has never tasted better!
