Golden West takes the Eat in Season Challenge
Golden West Café in Hampden cracks me up. The restaurant, not 10 years old, calls itself a "beloved Baltimore culinary institution" on its Web site. You gotta love it.
Anyway, the Beloved Baltimore Culinary Institution (BBCI) will take Slow Food Baltimore’s Eat in Season Challenge this month, starting tomorrow through Thursday, May 21.
This is the last month of the challenge, which Slow Food started in 2008 to encourage restaurants to focus on seasonal, local foods.
Little did the Slow Food organization know that this would happen anyway, and now even fast food chains are trying to get a piece of the action. (OK, maybe not. Maybe it just seems that way from some of the press releases I get.) ...
