Schmooze facilitator Keren Brown will announce today the next installment of Foodportunity, her quarterly soirees where a $25 ticket gets you some face time with notable figures in the local food scene, and some bites from local restaurants.
This go-round, scheduled for June 13, is all about farmers, foragers and the people who actually grow and procure the food we eat. On hand at the Palace Ballroom: lively gardener Amy Pennington, who just released her second book; cult favorite beekeeper Corky Luster; forager, author and brand new Seattle Magazine columnist Langdon Cook; and Kurt Timmermeister, the restaurateur-turned-cheesemaker whose memoir Growing a Farmer has landed him on Martha Stewart and raked in plenty of other accolades.
As for the food, Shaun McCrain's much-acclaimed Book Bindery will be serving up bites along with Chez Shea, Trellis in Kirkland, Nettletown, Tilikum Place Cafe, Urbane and BuiltBurger (presumably not serving tiny versions of their stuffed burger patties, alas). Tickets go on sale today.
