Ben Watson, who is a board member of the Slow Food USA Ark Committee, has been working with Pearl Chef to create this special menu. He will be present to answer your questions about the Ark Project. This will be a fundraising event to enable several of our local farmers to attend this year’s Terra Madre Convention – a unique symposium bringing together over 7000 farmers, small food producers, chefs and agriculture school delegates to network for sustainable agriculture and working together towards the goal of making good, clean, fair food available to everyone!!!!
