WESTPORT - Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 9:30 a.m., Chef David Hunt, in conjunction with Adirondack Harvest, will host a gathering of chefs and farmers at a meeting at Generations Restaurant to encourage culinary and agricultural connections resulting in more Adirondack-grown food served in local restaurants.
The event is open to all regional chefs and growers interested in learning more about making these connections. Several local farmers and chefs will speak briefly about how to optimize local food supply coordination.
"We'll meet in a casual setting, have some refreshments, find out what our farmers are growing and what chefs are looking for. Farmers can bring their crop plans and chefs can bring their menus. We'll have free handouts and booklets. Buying local produce keeps the North Country strong and helps keep agriculture thriving in the Adirondacks," said Adirondack Harvest Coordinator Laurie Davis, "Everyone is looking to buy local and eat local. We want out farmers and restaurants to take advantage of this opportunity to strengthen the regional economy."
