As part of their Culinary Chicago series, the Chicago History Museum is hosting a round table discussion on local and organic eating. For those of you in the Chicago-land area, here are the details:
The Local Option | Tuesday, April 22, 7:00 p.m.
In honor of Earth Day and Chicago’s efforts to go green, join us as we discuss all things local and organic. What does organic and all-natural really mean? How can I support local growers? What is a "locavore" and how can I become one? And what are area businesses doing to improve our food options and assist the local farmer? Featuring Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill and Topolobampo, Sarah Stegner of Prairie Grass Café, and Dave Cleverdon, farmer and owner of Kinnikinnick Farm and Green City Market board member. Moderated by Dimitra Tasiouras, Program Director of the Illinois Humanities Council.
