In a recent article in the Washington Post, Chefs Collaborative member Barbara Damrosch attempts to digest the latest in a plethora of food news and information-including the recently released Food Systems poster developed by Chefs Collaborative and the Wild Farm Alliance.
Damrosch describes the poster as “admirably complex” and in some ways, she’s right. The poster was sent to Chefs Collaborative members in late November and includes specific details on wild farming, conservation techniques, and predator protection – topics that may be new to many Chefs Collaborative members. The poster and companion communique that are meant to help chefs feel more equipped to support Nature-friendly agriculture, complicate an already growing library of information.
The Chefs Collaborative message, like Damrosch’s, is simple. Know where your food comes from. Until this is second nature to every chef in America, we’ll keep the information coming.
