Hugh Acheson on Eating Local, Knowing our Farmers

In this TEDxATLANTA clip from late last year, Atlanta chef Hugh Acheson talks about community, eating local, and the importance of southern food to the South. Acheson believes "in not taking short cuts" and that knowing the names of our farmers is imperative. Watch as he introduces viewers to an Athens farmer and his mule, talks about how he hates the term "farm to table," and defines what local, sustainable, and organic mean to him.
