I really enjoy the part of being a cook that is about connecting people. From farmer to the kitchen to the guest. It’s an ecosystem. If each part of this system is cared for and fulfilled by each other, it is more likely to flourish and grow. Being able to see where our food comes from can give a cook a better understanding of the value of the work that a farmer puts in to his product. It can also give us insight into the value of the life of the animal or plant that we use. Something that has a great deal of impact on the level of respect with which we treat our resources and each other.
