Understanding My Foodshed
A “foodshed” is really just like a watershed, but it describes the flow and origin of foodstuffs. My foodshed is the region where my (or at least most of my) food comes from. In the past that was very global for me. Lately it’s mostly local, with coffee, salt, olive oil, chocolate, lemons, and limes sneaking in there. It is an old word that is gaining new traction and frequency. It seems fitting because that’s exactly what I’m writing about and shooting – my food and its origins.
