The Taste of Local

Why do you buy local products? There are a lot of great reasons for buying locally, ranging from community support to global responsibility. Our world has expanded to an on-demand, instant gratification land of experiences. Every decision made is made with the inclination toward making "me" feel better. Buying local has evolved from what makes "me" happy to making the world better. A noble change in attitude to be sure, but I still feel we miss the point.

Chef Paul, a Certified Research Chef, is a 2002 graduate of Yorktowne Business Institute School of Culinary Arts in York, Pennsylvania. There he was class valedictorian and received the Chef Michael Hostetter Memorial Award for Culinary Excellence. He is a member of the Research Chefs Association and the Refrigerated Foods Association and has over 15 years of experience.

Working in restaurants since the age of 16, Paul has spent most of his life working with food; a love he developed in family style restaurants, honed in school, and practiced in fine dining establishments. Never one to be defining himself with a particular cuisine, Paul explores the world's palate with excitement. "The world is full of people who have made incredible foods with what is in their backyard and we now have access to all those wonderful flavors and combinations," he says. That love and excitement for flavor he now brings to Furmano Foods.
