We are so spoiled here in Silicon Valley. Fresh food is in our DNA; we really don’t know any other way to live. An abundance of fresh and local food is at our disposal year-round, so we can indulge in picked-this-morning produce from our local farmers’ markets, select our seafood fresh off the boat, and order our meats directly from the cattle farm whenever we want (and we always want to!). There is nothing more true than our love for culinary innovation and truly fresh and sustainable foods.
