Dana has dedicated one year of her life to eating only local farm foodstuffs. This means no bananas, no strawberries in winter and most unfortunately, no black pepper. Ms. Cox is bravely attempting to raise awareness of the troubling aspects of US food practices, and is using The Honest Meal Project as a forum to impact change. Hooray for this locavore warrior of the kitchen! Check out her blog on Chicago Now by clicking here, and her personal chef business Old Stove Gourmet.
BTW is that a book on cucumbers she's reading? I hope she did some pickling or she gonin' be starving this winter in Chi-Town yo!
