Want To Grow Good Things, Or Just Eat Them? The Good Food Festival is Coming

In a few years the Good Food Festival put on by Familyfarmed.org has grown into a key meeting point for those in the business of growing and serving better-raised food— and those who eat it. (How good is it as a networking event? We basically turned the panelists at one talk we went to into a movie.) It's a three-day event, with the first two days devoted to in-depth discussions related to good food as a business and as public policy, but Saturday intended for the broader public with chef demonstrations, workshops, tastings from "good food" restaurants and more. There are a lot of interesting programs, including one on fermentation by author and pickling guru Sandor Katz; we will actually be introducing the chef demos with Rick Bayless, Carrie Nahabedian and Paul Virant, in case their star power wasn't enough on its own (that was a joke), so check out the schedule and be sure to keep Thursday, March 14 through Saturday, March 16 open.
