Is it possible for ingredients to have “terroir” if they’re grown in water? Does our definition of “local ingredients” change when the farm is across the hall from the kitchen? Find out from Rob Laing, CEO/Founder Farm.One and Ronny Emborg (@ronnyemborg), Executive Chef of Atera NYC. Started in 2016, Farm.One (@farmone) grows rare herbs, edible flowers, microgreens and other exotic produce year-round and pesticide-free, using hydroponics and LED lighting. There are two operations, the R&D farm in the Institute of Culinary Education, and the main farm located underneath the two Michelin-starred restaurant Atera (@ateranyc).
