Queen Anne has become the most recent foodie destination, with new restaurants opening practically monthly. Queen Anne isn’t very convenient for us to get to, however, so we usually only head up there with a specific destination in mind. This is why we are envious of all the Queen Anne folks who have ready access to Eat Local.
Eat Local is a great concept, particularly in light of all the good discussion lately around knowing where your food is sourced (such as Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma – a must-read if you’re interested in this subject). The concept of Eat Local is simple: provide prepared meals for on-the-go families, using organic ingredients that are sourced locally and sustainably.
We’ve managed to pick up a few meals for our freezer. We love the fact that you can choose either traditional disposable containers, or reusable/returnable pyrex containers. We always opt for the glass containers, although we’re starting to acquire a small stack of them since we never seem to have them on hand when we’re near Queen Anne. We’re going to get back a large deposit one of these days.
Anyway, it’s been a bit of a bummer that they’re not conveniently accessible to those not on Queen Anne hill. Until now. They just announced that they’ve teamed up with spud.com for delivery! So now you can get Eat Local meals delivered to your door with your groceries! This might give us a good excuse to try SPUD.
