$60 per person

This event is family friendly! Tickets are required for children 5 and over. Children under 5 admitted free. This is a cocktail style Flights & Bites event, featuring up to 7 chefs creating 3 small dishes each, as well as up to 7 craft beverage makers, offering an array of delicious drink samples. 

Menu sneak peek! These talented chefs are cooking up an exciting selection of dishes! Menu options being discussed are: harissa white bean stew with spicy collards, Carolina panzanella salad, buttermilk fried chicken bites with dilly pickles, pastrami spiced red beet canapes, Hickory Nut Gap pork belly BLT bites, vegan rice milk ice cream, trout rillettes, ricotta with black honey and pickled berries, heirloom tomato and peach salad, smoked rabbit + johnny cakes with whipped buttermilk, pickled berry relish, deviled eggs with green tomato chow chow, mushroom jerky, fromage blanc + black bean hummus with blue borage blossom and more to come!

Eating local might be an ethical choice for many of us but for many others, urban and community gardens provide critical accessibility to fresh food – while also building community. These communities are planting not only seeds for produce and fruit but also seeds for self-sufficiency and equal access to fresh, healthy food. The communities and neighborhoods supporting these gardens come together in the name of well-being and food justice for all. Join us for delicious flavors straight from the garden while learning how community members are finding commonalities and purpose in their backyards.
