Angelic Organics Farm Dinner and Benefit – August 14
Jen Mayer, who makes us incredibly jealous with her recipes at the 24 boxes blog (and book), reminds us in the comments that tickets are available for Angelic Organics Learning Center’s 4th Annual Peak Harvest Farm Dinner benefit, to be held on Saturday, August 14 at 5:00 p.m., at Angelic Organics Farm near Rockford, IL. Guests will enjoy a gourmet five-course meal made from fresh, sustainable, and locally sourced food, prepared by chefs Christine Cikowski and Joshua Kulp of Sunday Dinner. Proceeds support Angelic Organics Learning Center’s work to bring urban and rural people together to build our local food system. The evening’s program will include remarks by Farmer John Peterson, subject of the award-winning documentary The Real Dirt on Farmer John.
The event starts in Chicago with a pre-event local snack and beverage tasting at Green Grocer Chicago (1402 West Grand Avenue). A shuttle bus will transport Chicago residents to the event. The dinner will feature cocktails from Death’s Door Spirits, and attendees are also welcome to BYOB to enjoy with your meal. Vegetarian menu is available.
