It would be nice to have you all over for a sumptuous autumnal meal. Poppy and I would cook, light some candles, you’d bring something along to put on the table, we’d celebrate the season’s harvest and share stories about our own triumphs and struggles with eating seasonally and locally. We’d come in costume as garden scarecrows. Or not. Some day we might actually do this dinner – we’ve talked about it.
For now the Eat Local Now dinner is where you’re going to find that meal and that experience and you don’t have to bring anything or dress up like a goofball.
On October 24th at SODO’s Herban Feast the 8th annual Eat Local Now dinner is happening. It’s a great evening for really really good food donated by local farmers and prepared by local chefs; for learning more about sustainability in the Pacific Northwest; for meeting local farmers, gardeners, chefs who are active in promoting sustainable food production and consumption; for its silent auction with great ideas for gifts and getaways; for keynote speaker, Greg Atkinson, an extraordinary local chef and food writer, who will address this year’s theme about choosing good food; mostly though, it’s a big party, a way to have fun with a group of friends and new acquaintances from the greater Seattle community.
Last year it was packed, festive, beautifully decorated and the food was abundant and delicious. Buy a couple of tickets or ten and check it out.
