Local, shmocal: the view from London
Interesting take by a leading chef on the rush to superlocal menus in Britain.
Well, he would say that, wouldn't he?
Peter Gordon, a New Zealander, is well known for his fusion style of cooking, not his committment to seasonal British produce or our traditional dishes - both of which he seems to wan to dismiss with something of contempt. Perhaps indicatively, the restaurants currently gaining Michelin stars and other awards are exacrtly those places cooking seasonal local food.
