Eat Local Now! Come for Dinner

Good food from close to home. We’d enjoy sitting down with all of you for such a Mixed Greens meal. We’d have a few things from the backyard garden and then a bunch of stuff from the farmer’s market, all of it from nearby. We’d have something with eggs and cheese, whatever fresh fruit is in season, a pile of roasted tomatoes and squash with some emmer farro. For starters.

A sweet thought . . . maybe some day. For now, even better, there’s the Eat Local Now! dinner on September 30th.

The Eat Local Now! event on September 30th is a delicious celebration, one that gets to the heart of thinking sustainably about the food we eat, featuring locally minded chefs like the Herban Feast’s Chef Dalis and Mashiko’s Chef Hajime. We hope you’ll consider attending.
