During the day I am an associate professor and extension food specialist at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. But at night I am a connoisseur of all things food. Eating locally is a great way to enjoy new and different foods. Visit your local farmers markets for seasonal produce. Your farmer and UNL-Extension are excellent resources for using local produce. See you at the market, yes, we go too!
