Buy Haywood uses cooking to connect to local farmers

Written by 

Buy Haywood is connecting the community with local farmers and chefs in an effort to reintroduce people to the simple pleasure of preparing seasonal, local foods.

The first cooking demonstration will be held on May 12 at the Whole Bloomin’ Thing Spring Festival in Waynesville.

This Cooking Local project, funded by a grant from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and administered by the Haywood County Economic Development Commission, aims to foster healthy eating and increase the sale of locally-grown fruits and vegetables in Western North Carolina through expanded knowledge of fresh food preparation and nutrition education.  

It will include a series of cooking demonstrations in Haywood, Jackson and Buncombe counties featuring a locally-grown product, the farmer who grew it, and a local chef who will show just how quick and easy it is to cook with fresh, locally-grown ingredients.  

Demonstrations will take place through November at a variety of venues including farmers markets, festivals and other events.

I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
