Florida has a unique environment leading to fabulous fruits and vegetables. Add to those home grown products the fresh seafood that abounds along our shores and we have recipes for food that no other state can match. And for those beef eaters, Florida is the 10th largest state for cattle production. All combined, Florida is rich with great ingredients and experienced chefs throughout the state creating mouth watering food.
We are fortunate in this state to have a Department of Agriculture that recognizes the commercial value of our surroundings. The AG Department created a whole program called Fresh From Florida. Besides promoting all our great Florida products, they created a complete branch of the Department that promotes the assets we have by creating recipes for all of us to enjoy.
At the website, Fresh From Florida, there are links to everything including dozens of recipes. The RECIPE section is searchable by recipe name, ingredient or type. You want appetizers, you got it! Or a quick dinner recipe? Maybe a dessert? It’s all here!
Other parts of the website has “How To” cooking videos and Chefs showing you new skills. Not in to cooking? Maybe gardening is you fascination. Just go here for regional details about how and when to plant the custom garden in your area of Florida.
We cannot be more satisfied with our state government here in Florida when it comes to promoting what makes our state so popular. Our food, our parks, our waterways and highways make us proud to be a Floridian!
