Garnet Cafe Gets National Attention

The Garnet Café, named for Idaho's state gem, really is precious. Remote as northern Idaho may be, proprietors Justin and Angeline McLane and chef Everett Fees are at the cutting edge of the farm-to-table locavore movement, making it their mission to serve food that is caught, raised, or grown locally. In fact, much of what is cooked here is sourced directly from the McLane family farm. Bacon, sausage, and ham come from McLane hogs. Yogurt is made in-house from farm milk. Duck and chicken eggs come from farm poultry. Seafood is wild-caught from Pacific waters. And while the McLanes don't raise mushrooms, the ones they use in the kitchen are foraged in the area by their mycological friends/Jane & Michael Stern, The Daily Beast. More here. H/T: Get Out! North Idaho
