New York, NY (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
Whether dining out on Valentine’s Day, or preparing a special meal at home to celebrate, knowing the latest food buzz words can help consumers navigate the menu and the grocery store.
What does “local” really mean, and what is the difference between organic and non-organic? Hormone-free, grass-fed, naturally-raised…these terms and others are becoming staples on menus and in stores – and, until now, few have been clearly defined.
Chef Danny Boome from Food Network’s “Rescue Chef” has teamed up with farm mom Katie Pratt of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance to define popular food terms and shed some light on food choices to help people learn more about where their food comes from.
