LOCAL PRODUCE/SLOW FOOD

 
With our socially responsible citizens, great emphasis is placed on sustainability, slow foods and other green initiatives.  When it comes to fruits and vegetables, folks make the effort to buy local.  With several large farms in the regions and farm markets in almost every town during the growing season, at-home cooks as well as top-notch chefs utilize foods found in the area to make tasty meals.  Even our local colleges are involved.  Yale University's Sustainable Food project works with local farmers and food manufacturers to create healthy food that supports local farmers and is sensitive to the environment.  Yale Salsa is served in the Yale dining halls and can be purchased at yale retail outlets.  Click here for a list of Agricultural Resources or contact REX at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

CLAIRE'S CORNER COPIA & ZINC

The chefs of Greater New Haven take local produce very seriously. Two notable examples are Claire Criscuolo of Claire’s Corner Copia and Denise Appel of Zinc. Creating menus around locally available produce, or growing their own, both restaurants have a reputation for tasty, ecologically responsible dining.

A New Haven landmark since 1975, the folks at Claire’s Corner Copia work hard to buy sustainable and organic ingredients. Combined with Claire’s skills as a registered nurse, they create delicious homemade and nutritious dishes. Claire, with her husband Frank (chef at Basta Trattoria), has a backyard garden where they grow organic heirloom tomatoes, arugula, herbs and melon for both restaurants. From soups to salads, from Bruschetta to Chive and Sweet Pea Pesto Risotto...
