In the pre-Olympic days, Salt Lake had an unfortunate reputation for bland food and oversized portions. Hosting an international event encouraged many people to look at what they eat. The result is a greater interest in the quality of food. I believe that the web can play a vital role in this renaissance of Utah cooking by providing greater information on nutritional value and freshness of food.
In recent years we have seen the opening of farmers markets a large number of new restaurants and increased interest in the nutritional value of food.
