Are you doing the 2012 Eat Local Challenge, sponsored by NolaLocavores? (The challenge requires participants to consume only those foods grown/harvested/caught within 100 miles of New Orleans for a solid month.) By this time next year, you’ll be able to add vodka to your locavore diet, as the new Donner-Peltier Distillery of Thibodaux ramps up production of distilled spirits.
Donner-Peltier will craft vodka from Louisiana-grown long grain rice and rum from local sugar. Read more about it here.
Now, that’s what I call good news. Nice to have around since we have so many snakes here.
