At Farm-To-Fork, we're not afraid to switch things up a little. Just as chefs and farmers are constantly adapting, we too welcome change and growth with open arms. So, after some careful thought and consideration, we're very excited to announce that we've revamped our event concept and we're introducing it to the world on Sunday, October 30!
We're also ecstatic to tell you that for this event, we're teaming up with Karen Leibowitz and Anthony Myint, the awesome folks behind The Perennial, recently named one of Bon Appetit's Best New Restaurants in America and one of Inc's 8 Most Innovative Restaurants in the US. Those are just a couple of the accolades they've been receiving--with their amazing food and holistic approach, they're getting more press coverage than we can even keep track of. Click here to see all the great write-ups on them.
While our previous events took on a seated dinner format, our October 30 event will be a more open, causal Sunday afternoon celebration of local food and drink, showcasing some of the Bay Area's premiere farm-to-table chefs, restaurants, and food producers.
From 3pm to 7pm, we'll open the doors of The Village event space in downtown San Francisco for guests to come eat, drink, dance, and learn a thing or two about our local food system. We'll have demonstrations from chefs and farmers, interactive digital displays, several small bites provided by The Perennial, a full bar (with a complimentary cocktail included in your ticket), live music, and a screening of Farm-To-Fork's latest short film.
Through our film and live demonstrations, we'll explore the impact and future of carbon farming, an alternative farming practice designed to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions in order to fight climate change. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to The Perennial Farming Initiative , The Perennial's nonprofit that raises funds for farmers fighting climate change.
While the format of this event may be a little different, our end goal remains the same--to facilitate a better understanding of our local food system. We're staying true to our identity, utilizing video and multimedia to tell the stories behind the intimate and interdependent relationship between chefs and local food producers.
We hope this revamped format will provide a more accessible way for all of us to celebrate the bounty of the Bay Area and our local food scene while expanding a dialogue on sustainability.
