Go Texan or Go Home

The Texas Department of Agriculture is sponsoring a GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-up this coming Wednesday, October the 1st, with participating restaurants offering local ingredients and wines, with a portion (sometimes all) of the proceeds going to help the local food bank(s).

I encourage anyone interested in promoting a return to the good old days of eating locally, seasonally and most importantly responsibly to give it a look. A list of the participating central Texas eateries can be found here.

More information about the GO TEXAN Restaurant program can be found here.
