Breakfast At Main Street Pizza Company Part 2

INTO THE WEEKEND.

HIGHS NEAR 60 AND LOWS IN THE MID 40s.

WE ARE BACK IN THE KITCHEN WITH LINDSAY CLARK AND OWNER OF MAINSTREET PIZZA COMPANY JAMIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

NO PROBLEM.

THE LAST TIME WE WERE IN THE KITCHEN WE WERE DISCUSSING THE AVOCADO TEST BUT BESIDES THE BREAKFAST MANY OF YOU GUYS ARE ALSO DOING THE DINNER.

THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR WE'RE DOING THIS DINNER AND THE PAVILION DOWNTOWN AND LAST YEAR WAS AN AMAZING TIME AND WE HAD SUCH A FUN TIME WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DO KNOW AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE OUR OWN FARM AS WELL.

WE SOURCE FOOD FROM ABOUT 30 OR 35 DIFFERENT LOCAL FARMS, KINGSPORT, ABINGDON, LIMESTONE, JONESBORO, JOHNSON CITY, ALL KINDS OF LOCAL FOOD AND WE PUT IT ALL TOGETHER AND THIS BIG SEVERAL COURSE MEAL AND RAISE MONEY FOR THE DOWNTOWN JOHNSON CITY FOUNDATION.

SO WONDERFUL AND I KNOW ONE THING YOU ALL PRIDE YOURSELF ON HIS LOCAL FOOD, THE ONLY IS IT& BUT YOU GET FROM LOCAL FARMS AND WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE SURE TO INCORPORATE THAT? I GREW UP GROWING THINGS HERE AND THERE AND I REALLY GOT A TASTE FOR IT SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

WE WORKED HARD AT IT ON A SMALL SCALE AND STARTED INCORPORATING THAT.

AND ONCE YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING FOR LIVING, LIKE RESTAURANTS, YOU WANT TO LOOK FOR WAYS TO TURN YOUR ENTERPRISE IN AN ETHICAL WAY TO DO GOOD THINGS FOR THE COMMUNITY.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE COULD DO IS GET INVOLVED WITH THE LOCAL FOOD MOVEMENT AND SO WE WORKED HARD AT THAT WE THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND WE THINK IT IS GREAT TO KEEP AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU CAN IN YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY SO WHEN YOU SPEND MONEY WITH US, JUST IN GENERAL, IF YOU SPEND MONEY WITH A LOCAL BUSINESS $.

68 OF THE DOLLAR STAYS IN THE LOCAL ECONOMY VERSUS $.

43 WITH ANOTHER BUSINESS AND FOR US IT IS PROBABLY MORE BECAUSE WE TURN AROUND BY SO MUCH LOCAL FOOD.

SO IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR US AND WE HAVE OUR OWN FARM WE HAVE CSA PACKAGES, WE ARE ON THE FOURTH SEASON OF THAT, YOU CAN PICK THOSE UP IN DOWNTOWN JOHNSON CITY, YOU ARE STORING KINGSPORT, SATURDAY PICK UP AT THE STORE JOHNSON CITY.

IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR A LOT OF REASONS.

WE WERE TALKING DURING THE COMMERCIAL BREAK, IT IS ALL LOCAL, WE WERE TALK ABOUT THIS.

YOU MAKE YOUR OWN BAGELS.

SPENT IF JUST DOWN THE STREET.

THIS IS FROM THE TROUT FARMS AND IT IS THERE COLD, SMOKED PASTRAMI TROUT WE GET THERE TROUT FILLETS THAT WE SMOKE IN- HOUSE AND TURN INTO OUR TROUT DIP.

THEY ARE IN LANDFILL AND THEY BEEN IN THE BUSINESS SINCE THE 40s, A GREAT FAMILY OWNED BUSINESS, AND OTHER STUFF OVER HERE, YOU SEE THE SAUSAGE ON THE GRAIN BOWL.

ALL OF OUR MANY, ALL OF OUR SAUSAGE COMES FROM KING FAMILY FARMS AND PINEY FLATS.

IT IS ALL OVER MANY.

YOU JUST CONSCIOUSLY KNOW THAT WHEN YOU ORDER SOMETHING IT IS LOCAL.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE BENSON STUFF, THEY ARE DOWN IN MADISONVILLE, AN AREA WELL KNOWN FOR THEIR DAIRY.

THEY MAKE AMAZING STUFF.

IT IS WONDERFUL AND IT LOOKS DELICIOUS.
