Eating a bit healthier these days, so I made:
Whole wheat pasta
Spinach, parmesan and pistachio pesto (basil, fennel, tarragon, cayenne pepper, garlic)
Sauteed onions, spinach and carrot (salt, herbs de provence)
Baked chicken (salt, pepper, garlic powder, bay leaves)

Alright /ck/, Food ethics thread.
If you were running your own kitchen, would you rather import the finest ingredients from halfway around the world, a la classical cuisine, or get everything locally, a la Alice Waters, et al?
Vegans need not respond, if you really enjoyed food you wouldn't be vegan. Vegetarians are alright, I imagine most of you live in areas that don't have some of your favorites items locally.
I have to go with importing ingredients, while not completely excluding locally sourced. I grew up in Florida, so fresh seafood was never more than a 2 hour drive, but we didn't have high quality tuna, or salmon, or lobster.

So I was at a moderately fancy restaurant the other day and they had dauphinoise potatoes as a side, get dinner, scalloped potatoes on plate.
Yes, I herped, then I derped. I should have known there was a pretentious name for even scalloped potatoes, but god damn it makes me rage.
What other common foods or sauces have pretentious doubletalk names?

>Kentucky restaurant shut down after roadkill found in kitchen
>Customers at the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Williamsburg, Ky., alerted authorities after they spotted something they probably wish they hadn't: restaurant employees wheeling roadkill back to the kitchen.
>Local CBS affiliate WYMT interviewed the witnesses. The roadkill was apparently a deer stuffed into a trash can. "There was actually a blood trail they were mopping up behind the garbage can," customer Katie Hopkins said. "There was like a tail, and like a foot and a leg sticking out of the garbage can, and they wheeled it straight back into the kitchen."
>Local health inspector Paul Lawson was called in to investigate. Lawson said the restaurant owners told him they didn't know they were doing anything wrong. "They said they didn't know they weren't allowed to do that. So that makes me concerned that maybe they could have before. They didn't admit to doing it before." The owner said he didn't plan to serve the deer to customers—instead he planned to use it to feed his family.
>The restaurant has been temporarily shut down but will be eligible to reopen as soon as it passes another health inspection and proves it has been washed and sanitized.
I always just assumed the Chinese restaurant stories were a racist joke.
