NORWICH – A renowned chief and culinary cookbook editor who has worked for the last 30 years with such names as Martha Stewart, Ina Garten, Diana Kennedy and Anne Willan, will be serving his creations at a local cafe Saturday.

Professional chef Roy Finamore will be coming to the area tomorrow at The Connection, 28 South Broad, from 2 to 5 p.m. to help promote the advantages of eating locally. “It not exclusively local. I don’t think I could live without olive oil and salt, but there are a lot of ways to cut back on your ‘carbon footprint’ as they say,” said Finamore.

Finamore was referring to a grassroots initiative that takes the environment into consideration when making dietary decisions. The shipping of food means the farther it travels, the more energy spent on moving it, which increases our consumer “footprint” on the environment. Eating locally can reduce that effect by reducing the amount of energy used to bring the food to market.
