There are so many great reasons these days to celebrate our local Midwest food roots, including that many of our local producers are also award winners. Red Table Meat Co. won three More Good Food Awards in San Francisco in 2016 for their handcrafted salami and cured meats. Red Table Speck ham, Coppa, and Big Chet’s all won glowing reviews from a very discerning group of judges.
Andy Hatch from Uplands Cheese won yet another coveted Good Food Award for his Pleasant Ridge Reserve.
