Do This: "Farm to Table" Kick-Off at Carnivale

By L. Stolpman in Food on May 18, 2010 5:20PM


Carnivale's husband and wife team, Chef Mark Mendez and Wine Director, Elizabeth Mendez, are teaming up with Slow Food Chicago for a Kick-Off Party for the 2010 Farm to Table Season. We went to a Slow Food event at Carnivale last year and it was fantastic. Unbelievably fresh food and fantastic company. At $30, it's a steal.

Featured farms include: Mick Klug Farms, Swan Creek, Capriole Goat Cheese and Dietzler Farms. The Slow-Food website also features the names of farms to know.

  • WHEN: Wednesday, May 26, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • COST: $30 per person, portion of proceeds will benefit Slow Food Chicago
  • RESERVE: Reservations required, call 312-850-5005
