Yee-haw! The Farmer-Chef Connection, organized by the Seattle Chefs Collaborative, is one of my favorite events of the year. It's a big meet-and-greet for local farmers and local chefs, complete with "speed dating", tasty lunch (locally sourced, of course), and this year one of the break-out sessions is all about in-house charcuterie! As I wrote earlier: yee-haw!
The conference will be held at Herban Feast's new-ish space, called "SoDo Park". Local restauranteur legend/celebrity chef Tom Douglas, Luke Woodward of Oxbow Farm, and chef instructor/author Greg Atkinson will speak/lead discussion panels. It promises to be a fun, worthwhile event for chefs and farmers.
