It’s been 11 years since the first Good Food Festival and things have evolved! This year on Saturday, March 21st visionary farmers, chefs and inventors will gather and share their latest and greatest innovations, recipes, insights and what they see as the future of sustainable food in America.
It’s an opportunity for Chicago’s brightest chefs to discuss what they’re passionate about. Matthias Merges (Yusho, Billy Sunday, A10) and Jason Hammel (Lula Café, Nightwood), will discuss their Pilot Light program to teach Chicago schoolchildren about the role of food in society.
In addition to the annual Chicago Foodies / Peterson Garden Project Seed Swap, there are gardener tips, DIY foodie activities and even a kid’s corner sponsored by Purple Asparagus.
The event features more than 150 Good Food producers and vendors. Finally, this year you’ll find in addition to great food, craft beverages!
