The Local Beet’s First Farm Dinner
The Local Beet is pleased to announce our first ever Farm Dinner, a multi-course, family-style dinner featuring locally-produced, seasonal ingredients prepared by our own Sustainable Cook, Melissa Graham of Monogramme Events and Catering. We’re proud to be able to have Melissa cook for us and our guests. She is an excellent cook and a tireless advocate for bringing families together at the table around organic and sustainably-grown foods.
We are also proud to present this meal at Genesis Growers, a farm run by Vicki Westerhoff just 70 miles outside of Chicago. Vicki is intently focused on growing high quality produce and eggs without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. Read more about Vicki and Genesis Growers here.
