Cooking with Ed Chiles: Manatee County an abundant food source

The local, sustainable food movement, sometimes referred to as the localvore movement, is the most important initiative I have seen in my career as a restaurateur. It is also the most satisfying. Knowing where your food comes from not only makes you feel better, it also tastes better. When menus are influenced by locally sourced seafood, produce and meats, one can enjoy the freshest and healthiest offerings of the season. Manatee County has an incredible wide variety of fresh, local choices.
