Sunday July 4, 2010
Donkey & Goat Winery, Berkeley, CA
GUEST CHEF: Nicole LoBue, LoBue Events, San Francisco
We like urban agriculture and a lot of other people do, too. This year it's been in the news; people are growing things, raising animals, making wine right in the city. We are going to explore this trend with a good look at who's doing what and where it's happening. Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City
, will open her garden gates for a look at what it means to mix farm and city. For dinner we'll move on to Donkey & Goat Winery where Tracey and Jared make wine some distance from the vineyard. Don't look for a garden here, this will be gritty city dining and there certainly isn't enough room for a long table at Novella's place. We'll be joined by other urban agriculture champions and our chef of the evening will be Nicole LoBue, who is usually busy with secret supperclubs and is an avid forager and supporter of urban ag. Her food is killer and she only sources sustainable high-end product.
