"At a young age, I was exposed to a lot of different types of food and cultures. I think as a kid, I really got it and it stuck with me. I judge a lot of places based on the local food." [10:15]
"Organic and local food- we grew up with that in Portland, Seattle, and the West Coast in general... it's not a trend, it's real." [13:00]
"It's really important to honor local food. People talk about its environmental impact, but it's also about local culture." [19:50]
