Join us on a journey with local connoisseurs to deepen your culinary knowledge through nine exclusive hands-on workshops. As our local food economy has grown stronger and more connected than ever, we realize the value in getting back to the basics. Over the past ten years, Eat Drink Local has served to encourage support for farm-to-table restaurants and home cooking with local, seasonal ingredients. We can’t wait to embark on another local food exploration with our community. This year features ice cream, preserves, cheese, tacos, beer and more! All such great reasons to #eatdrinklocal.
Note: Tickets are transferable, but non-refundable.
