For $65, you get four courses…
…drawing on the produce of GrassRoots Farms (chicken), Front Field Farms (lettuces), Full Moon Farms (carrots), Diamond Hill Farms (eggs, scallions) and the inimitable Woodland Gardens (bok choy, radish, celery, hakurei turnips, kale).
Registration for the conference itself is closed, but the dinner is an opportunity to participate.
In other news:
Less farm-to-table and more burger-to-mouth is the fact that the Blind Pig is opening its third location, in the Kroger shopping center at College Station and Barnett Shoals, in the former Shane's/Mexicali. Champy's, on Baxter, opens Thursday, ahead of its promised schedule.
Coming up next week, on Feb. 26 at 4 p.m., is John T. Edge, head of the Southern Foodways Alliance, speaking as part of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts' Global Georgia series in the UGA Chapel. His talk, “Grits, Greens, and Gochujang: The Emergence of a Newer Southern Cuisine,” is just the sort of thing Edge is great at, and it should be good stuff. Plus: free.
