TerraVita Festival – Sustainable Classroom- October 19th
In ways realized and unrealized, consumers greatly benefit from the relationship between chefs and small farmers. Their constant dialogue informs what food is grown and in what quantities, which trickles down to what’s available to shoppers at farmers’ markets. In this class, we’ll examine how chefs and farmers partner in order to offer more people access to local food, create new, innovative revenue streams, expand product lines, and meet the demands of a population that’s increasingly adventurous when it comes all things culinary. Acme’s Chef Kevin Callaghan and chef Jason Smith from 18 Seaboard and the 18 Restaurant Group will be joined by farmers Elise Bortz, Portia McKnight, and Eddie Moore to give a little perspective – and a few delicious bites!
Confirmed Participants: Kevin Callaghan from Acme Food & Beverage, Jason Smith from 18 Restaurant Group, Portia McKnight from Chapel Hill Creamery, Elise Bortz from Elysian Fields Farm, Eddie Moore from Moore Brothers Beef, and moderator Monica Willis from Modern Farmer
