I seriously love to talk about food and about restaurants.
I love to talk about all the different ways you can eat it and baste it, roast it, fry it, sauté it and smother it in something else, for instance. I also love to talk about where my food is coming from and where it was raised, sure, but not nearly as much as talking about how I’m going to eat it and enjoy it –or the meals I’ve eaten and enjoyed in days past– in loving and borderline-pornographic detail. However, in our food and toxin-conscious society, knowing just how humanely and safely your food was grown is becoming an increasingly more pressing and serious conversation, especially when you eat at restaurants where their food’s provenance may not be the first priority, and The Nature Conservancy wants to hear what you have to say about it.
Now through June 4th, you can nominate your favorite green restaurant for the 2012 People’s Choice Nature’s Plate Award by clicking on this link. Not sure what constitutes a green restaurant? No problem: the Nature Conservancy helpfully explains it here. (FYI, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch has been the pioneer in explaining sustainable seafood for years.) The winner will be announced June 26th.
And now, I’m hungry.
