Mark Your Calendar: July Farm To Table Dinner

  1. This event sounds really cool! I wish it was closer to me. I love farm to table restaurants and dinners, especially since those who do not have much exposure to local foods are often so impressed upon their first visit to one of these tastings that they make more of an effort to "go local" in the future. Woo hoo!

    1. Yeah, it definitely inspires people. I'm really looking forward to it.
