General Admission Tickets Now Available!
2014 is Slow Food’s 25th anniversary as a global movement and we thought it an apt time to expand our annual pig roast to support and promote more of the region’s great farms. Chefs this year will each cook a different animal from a different farm – ranging from bison to pork – and we’ve appropriately changed the name of the soiree to The Farm Roast. Without further ado…
The 2014 Farm Roast Chefs
Ashlee Aubin, Wood
Keith Carlson, Dia De Los Tamales
Greg Gunthorp, Gunthorp Farms
Andrew Hroza, Goose Island Brewpub
Alex Pilas, Eataly
Sean Sanders, Browntrout
Kim Gracen, Heartland Cafe – Vegetarian Entree
Patrick Cloud, Bang Bang Pie Shop – Dessert
In addition, the event will incorporate items from the Ark of Taste, Slow Food’s living catalog of over 1100 delicious and distinctive foods facing extinction. Admission price includes a commemorative glass for drinking a selection of Goose Island beers. Rumor has it that there may be a special Ark of Taste brew in the works…
Have fun! Eat well! Do good!
