Chef Life Magazine Issue #62: Local Ingredients
![mjt4g299fh.jpg](https://img.esteem.ws/mjt4g299fh.jpg) 

These are local tomatoes grown on a mountain top called Cameron Highlands. We get these tomatoes shipped in to the city here in Kuala Lumpur every week and get them at their freshest state. 

It's shipped to everywhere from supermarkets to wholesale markets and even to the humble mini mart. 

<h2>Price Myth</h2>

But not every local ingredient is cheaper than export ingredients. For example, the cheapest beef you can find in Malaysia is Indian imported beef. Local beef is almost the same price as Australian imported beef and in terms of taste and tenderness of the meat, local Malaysian beef is like the quality of the Indian beef. 

Mutton (goat) is also another example where New Zealand mutton is cheaper a few ringgit per kilo (RM - local currency), compared to local mutton. Not to mention NZ mutton is more tender compared to the local mutton. Flavor wise, not much difference. It is goat after all. 

Generally, vegetables that are grown locally are cheaper. Recently we've even cultivated local beetroot which prior to this, you could only find beetroot at fancier supermarkets and cost you a bomb to get one. 

Now it's available at local mini marts even and this *superfood* is now accessible to the mass. 

It's great to see that our local farmers are always being innovative and finding out ways to farm and produce more varities of fruit and vegetables. With people like this in our nation, we're sure to grow and succeed as long as we're given the room to do so. "Malaysia Boleh!"
