US Chefs Name Kitchen Gardens Top Trend of the Year
In a world that seems to be brimming with bad news, kitchen gardens continue to the good news story that won't go away. Fresh evidence of this came in the form of a recent survey of chefs by the National Restaurant Association:
A third of the 2,000 chefs surveyed by the National Restaurant Association named gardens the top trend. Chris Moyer, who leads sustainability programs for the group, said it costs restaurants less to grow their own produce than to buy it elsewhere and have it shipped. It also gives them more control over quality, he said. "It lets them offer things people are looking for, and a growing number of people are looking for that locally grown type of fare," Moyer said.
