Local Food: Fortune Flavors the Bold

Friday, 28 June 2013 17:17 Published in Features & Occasionals

Each month, CATALYST brings our readers tales of fascinating local endeavors—entrepreneurs launching new restaurants or retail businesses, gardeners digging, composting and planting their way to greener communities, or locals organizing to improve the vitality of the city we share—but this month, we're going to take you on a tour of a local business bringing all of these ideas together in the vision of one mover and shaker who understands that, if you want the fruit, sometimes you just have to climb out on a limb. For Kathie Chadbourne, proprietor of the Avenues Bistro on 3rd, out on a limb is par for the course.

First Unitarian Church Sees the Light

Wednesday, 29 May 2013 17:57 Published in Features & Occasionals

One congregation here in Utah is already providing a model for what we may see as more and diverse people of faith organizing to protect the environment. The First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, located at 569 South and 1300 East, has already embraced the need for action, according to the Church's minister of over 26 years, Reverend Tom Goldsmith.

Slow Food: The Taste of Utah—Literally

Friday, 29 March 2013 18:59 Published in Features & Occasionals

Beyond Boston baked beans or California-style pizza are foods through which we can actually reach a deeper communion with place.

Insects: Tasty and Nutritious

Friday, 01 March 2013 17:59 Published in Features & Occasionals

The insistent cadence of crickets already evokes the beautiful melancholy of late summer: warm evenings spent in conversation under the stars, or the knowledge that soon—though not quite yet—vacation will end with the return to school or work. But Salt Lake resident Pat Crowley hopes that crickets' evening sussurance (or—more accurately though less poetically—stridulation) might soon have another association for people here in the US: that of a ringing dinner bell.

Easter Feasting: To the Source!

Friday, 01 March 2013 17:54 Published in Features & Occasionals

Easter is on Sunday, March 31 this year. If your celebration of physical and spiritual renewal features dyed eggs, a roast ham or lamb, consider purchasing directly from one of Utah's farmers. However, many of these producers run small-scale, family-run operations, so get in touch with them early in the month to reserve your Easter dinner. (If your Easter celebration includes some of the more esoteric cultural trappings—willow switches and mystery novels, anyone?—you're on your own.)

Youth Activism: Locavoracious for Localisciousness

Friday, 01 February 2013 19:20 Published in Features & Occasionals

Utah is a treasure chest for the locavore, abundant with farmer’s markets and CSAs offering up the emerald of dew-glistened spinach and lettuce, the rich ruby of beets and the dull gold of potatoes and corn. But busy schedules don’t always allow time for a treasure hunt—whether it involves squeezing in an extra trip to the farmer’s market (in season) or scrambling for a decent recipe that can incorporate unfamiliar or surprise CSA fare.
