I'm very pleased to announce that the fourth and fifth Locavore Dinners are sold-out. The meals will be prepared and served by Sunday Dinner, an artisan custom caterer devoted to local, seasonal and sustainable food. I've patiently pursued an opportunity to collaborate with chefs and co-owners Christine Cikowski and Joshua Kulp since I first met them in 2007... and now I finally have 'em cornered. =)

About Locavore Dinners
Launched in Chicago in 2010 by food scientist Jim Javenkoski, this monthly series of culinary events represents the convergence of locally-grown food and ol' school social learning. The dinners offer opportunities for consumers, chefs and farmers to gather and share delicious meals over casual yet informative conversations about the provenance and production of our food. Ideally, that dialog will reveal to each participant how we can collectively strengthen our local food system to provide economic, environmental, safety, wellness and justice benefits for all of us. The enduring goal of the Locavore Dinners is to enhance our food literacy and cultivate our "local food wisdom", one meal at a time.
