Food for Thought Festival, September 14-15, 2007

September 12th, 2007

The ninth annual Food for Thought Festival, sponsored by the REAP Food Group, will explore regional food traditions and the desirability of eating sustainably by tapping the seasonal harvest of local producers.

The Friday Night Forum, 125 Agricultural Hall (7:30-9:30) will feature a panel of speakers including Dan Barber, Leah Caplan, Scott Williams and Anne Strainchamps.

Saturday festival events will be held just off the Capitol Square on Martin Luther King Blvd. from 8:00 AM until 1:30 PM. Enjoy cooking demonstrations, information tables, tasty samples, activities and raffle prize opportunities.

Of related interest, you may wish to consider taking part in the Eat Local Challenge (Wisconsin). Good for the local economy, the environment and your health—and what a pleasant way to do so given our area bounty of farmers’ markets and CSAs!

Bon appetit!
