This is a Seated Dinner, with a cocktail hour followed by a five course meal with paired beverages, featuring 6 chefs and 5 craft beverage makers.

Menu sneak peek! These talented chefs are cooking up an exciting selection of dishes! Menu options being discussed are: oysters on the 1/2 shell; mini empanadas filled with herbs & green, made with yucca flour; South Indian coconut curry with trout; and deconstructed lemon meringue pie!

Join us on an exploration of traditional and contemporary eating practices to improve physical, emotional and mental health - and how this can be done deliciously, affordably and simply; as well as understanding better the connections between farming practices to take care of the land, as well as the body. After all, there is no gut health without land health. With each course, enjoy engaging conversations between land-body-health conscious chefs and speakers about how food serves as medicine in their lives and communities.
