Our Commitment to Sustainable Seafood

We believe sustainability is the most vital ingredient to great seafood. That’s why we’ve partnered with Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch®, a non-profit organization who shares our commitment to building a better food system and is one of the world’s most well-respected guides to sustainable seafood. As much as we love cooking with fish, we recognize the urgent need to source it responsibly. The ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and is home to more than one million species.

But just as we depend on the ocean for so much, it in turn depends on us for protection. Read more »

It’s just a guess, but I’m betting that vegetable consumption across the U.S. is at an all-time high each January. But when you eat lots of veggies, you end up with lots of veggie scraps.
