edible Reno-Tahoe is a quarterly publication that promotes and celebrates the abundance of local foods in the Northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe region. We value local, seasonal, authentic foods and culinary traditions. We celebrate family farmers who plant the seeds and work tirelessly to bring you the freshest local produce, the ranchers and poultry farmers committed to creating healthier and more sustainable methods of working with animals and the land, the food artisans who proudly concoct delicious products, and the local chefs who continually excite us with the outstanding flavors of our area. We at edible Reno-Tahoe honor their dedication to using the highest quality, local, seasonal foods, and we want to share their stories with you.
Through our printed publication, website, and events, we aim to connect consumers with these local growers, retailers, chefs, and food artisans, enabling those relationships to grow and thrive in a mutually beneficial, healthful, and economically viable way. We are part of a growing national movement throughout this country that is encouraging people to eat more locally-grown and locally-produced foods. By eating locally, we help sustain the small family farms that grow these foods, we enjoy food that is fresher and healthier for us, and we help reduce the cost to the environment – and in dollars – of transporting foods over long distances.
Here in Reno-Tahoe we are blessed with an abundance of talented writers, photographers, and artists, and that just happens to be part of our mission, too: To present the extraordinary voices of Reno-Tahoe journalists and other creative types, and to coax from them the tales that don't often get told. Through them you will find out about new products, thriving traditions, or exciting food events, festivals, restaurants, and markets – all of the things that are helping to make us a true culinary destination.
