Here's a video that seeks to illustrate the importance of sourcing locally (restaurants, in particular), and not coincidentally, it was filmed in Boulder — one of the birth places of farm-to-table dining. To drive the message further, the video not only includes dramatic, Lifetime-appropriate music, but also features chef/owner Eric Skokan of Boulder's Black Cat Bistro and Bramble & Hare. At both restaurants, Skokan sources nearly everything from his own farm. "The level of creativity I had in the restaurant [Black Cat Bistro] soared when I became a farmer," Skokan shares, adding that his approach to farming/cooking should inspire others. "Chefs need to become more dynamic — they need to stop looking at cookbooks and recipes. They need to start letting the vegetables tell them how to cook and determine what's going to be on the menu."
