Salt Lake Sites: Food
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.
This directory lists local food related web sites. You can find restaurants, grocery stores and restaurant supply equipment with the links above. You can find Salt Lake cookbooks in the online store.
