It’s Local Fish Week here on the BAMCO blog, in honor of our first-ever Eat Local (Fish) Challenge! This recipe from Edward T. Farrow, Bon Appétit Executive Chef at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, takes some assembling, but its bold flavors pair well with mild tilapia.
It’s Local Fish Week here on the BAMCO blog, in honor of our first-ever Eat Local (Fish) Challenge! According to a new report from NOAA, Americans eat only about 15 pounds of seafood per capita annually, and of that, 91% is imported. Time to tip the scales in a healthy, homeward location! We’ll be running a tasty seafood recipe each day this week from our chefs.
Many Americans now know the names of the farms that grow their food, but even as we’re urged to eat more seafood for its health benefits, few of us can identify local species or the fishing operations that supply them. The time is ripe for local fish. Please join @bamco and @seafoodwatch for a Twitter chat on Monday, September 24, at 12pm Pacific.

Conscientious consumers rely on third-party-certified labeling programs such as organic, which reassures us that those products were grown without toxic pesticides or using genetically engineered seeds, and Certified Humane, which tells us that the animals we’re eating were raised ethically. But neither of those labels tells us anything about how the people behind the products were treated. That’s why the Fair Trade Certified™ label is so important. October is Fair Trade month, and we at Bon Appétit Management Company are proud to have partnered with Fair Trade USA to help raise awareness.
This week, as millions of college students headed back to school, Newsweek/The Daily Beast released its College Rankings 2011, with categories including Most Service-Oriented, Most Beautiful, Future CEOs, and — most important to us — Best College Food, honoring those schools that “go above and beyond to make it great.” We are proud to say […]
