Locally Sourced: The Benefits of Using Locally Sourced Ingredients
Here at Casa Natalia in San José del Cabo, we understand the benefits and importance of using as many local ingredients as possible. Our on-site restaurant, Mi Cocina, works with local fishermen, farmers and ranchers to source the freshest fish, organic vegetables and farm-raised meats.
The benefits of using locally sourced ingredients are extensive. For one, locally grown food is full of flavor due to the fact that crops are harvested at their peak of ripeness and are distributed almost immediately, resulting in us being able to have them transformed into works of art on your plate within a matter of 24 hours. To top it off, this also reduces opportunities for contamination in transit. And last but not least, using locally sourced ingredients allows us take advantage of seasonal ingredients in our dishes; meaning the menu is ever-changing, and never dull.
Besides delicious flavors, using locally ingredients is also a wonderful contribution to the local economy. The money spent with local farmers and fishermen stays close to home and has a direct impact on the local community. This also supports the environment by reducing transportation emissions and maintaining local farmland.
