First, let me tell you why this dinner and this movement are so important. Few things are making America more sick than the food that we eat. Local food, by any definition, is healthier that the processed and long-distance-shipped food that Americans live on. Secondly, industrial farming, which feeds most of America, is an unhealthy system. If you question that, watch the film, Food Inc. Locally grown food tends to be grown in a more sustainable manner. And it is always good, when possible, to know your farmer. Now, the dinner ....
This Thursday, May 6, 2010 between 5 and 9pm Chef Tim Kilcoyne and his team will host a Locavore Light 2010-inspired all local dinner! That means all ingredients used (except for the salt) will be sourced from within a 100 mile radius of Ventura! The cost will be $55 per person which will include wine, or $45 per person without wine. Reservations are highly recommended as space is limited.
