Episode 16 - Let Go - Abigail Henson
Abigail Henson All-around awesome person Abigail Henson is bringing her vision to life as the owner of Lofo - a farm-to-table establishment in Syracuse, NY. Abigail is a Natural Gourmet Chef and Certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. But really, she's a creative genius, dream-maker, and builder of healthy communities. I caught up with her a busy cafe to talk food, dreams, and hard work. Her take on your role as a leader is a game-changer. If you're in the Syracuse area (which you should be, because it's worth flying in just eat here), swing by her drool-worthy establishment. If you ask nicely, you can book a private 7-course Chef's tasting for you and 20-50 of your friends on any given Tuesday this summer. Also, please invite me.

LoFo restaurant owner and chef Abigail Henson replaced chicken with cauliflower in Syracuse's annual wing contest and found herself with more publicity than the winner.
"When meat does make an appearance on the menu we strive to source locally, organically, or ethically and best case scenario, all of the above," Henson told Meat Free Monday. "For this particular event we were not able to procure 3,000 chicken wings locally or ethically, which resulted in our decision to showcase our mission statement, instead using cauliflower as the vehicle for that message." According to Henson, there were "a lot of confused faces, questionable grimaces and a handful of 'you've gotta be kidding me's'" but, in the end, only one patron out of 1,500 turned away the opportunity to try something new. Following the event, Henson explained to syracuse.com that her top quality ingredients cost just as much as the meat used in some of the other restaurants and that preparation of the cauliflower dish was more labour intensive than standard wings. Her dish also resulted in less overall wastage, since the "amount in weight of edible 'meat' was much greater than the meat you would eat off a bone of a traditional wing". Henson is now advocating for more inclusivity at contests like the Wing Walk, encouraging people to think out of the box when it comes to food and new ways of serving it. "Other restaurants in the area have already begun to adopt cauliwings onto their own menus," she said.

LoFo owner Abigail Henson defended the choice to go veggie with the wings, despite some gripes.
"We had a mixed bag of looks -- but the compliments coming back were tremendously positive," Henson wrote in an email.
