Local Chefs Speak @ Farmer-Chef Event, Wakeman Farm

CTbites Team


On Monday, June 17, a panel of distinguished restaurateurs and farmers is getting together at Wakeman Town Farm, 134 Cross Highway, Westport, to talk about The Farmer-Chef Connection. The public is invited to join local chefs including Bill Taibe (le Farm & The Whelk)
Nancy Roper (Boxcar Cantina) for a lively discussion about why it's more important than ever for restaurants to source and serve local foods, and why it's vital for consumers to support these local venues. Held at 6:30 p.m. at Wakeman Town Farm, the event will feature a moderated discussion between our area's top sustainable restauranteurs, food purveyors and consumers. 
Many local chefs and food producers will be in attendance, and the public is welcome to join this informative, downhome forum, where wine and sustainable nibbles by local chefs will be served.
