In a very funny (but woefully ill-informed -- does Stein really think the only things that grow in Iowa are corn, soybeans, and pork?) article, Joel Stein vows to 'give the finger to locavores' by cooking a meal sourced only from things flown in from at least 3000 miles away.

The irony in his piece?

"This, it turned out, was not an easy task. Farmers in Southern California, it seems, can grow anything."
Not long ago, he would have had a hard time even knowing where most of his produce came from. Now when he wants to eat Peruvian asparagus, at least he can. Thank a locavore, Joel.
