Chicago food fests don’t get any fresher than Farm Roast 2017

Farm Roast 2017Chicago’s best food festival is back this Sunday. Forget the Taste of Chicago or any neighborhood fests, Slow Foods Farm Roast 2017 is easily the best food event you’ll attend this year.

The best of the best chefs will be on hand to keep you well fed, but don’t sleep on the drinks. You’ll be able to dabble in cocktails, beer, and wine from the likes of Proxi, Nico, Cindy’s, Moody Tongue, Virtue Cider, Candid Wines and more. Check out a more complete list here.

Tired of just walking around eating and drinking? Breakout sessions! These add-ons include a mixology session, a panel with the farmers who are the reason you’re eating so well, and a guided tasting of rare heirloom ingredients. Last year I learned how to butcher a pig in one of these sessions. Sure I’ll never use that information, but it was a blast to learn it.

Farm Roast 2017 is this Sunday, August 27th, from 2-5pm at Local Foods. Click here for more info & tickets!

Snag your Farm Roast 2017 tickets and join us for a celebration connecting the region’s best chefs, farmers, brewers, and bartenders for an afternoon of incredible food, drink and education.

Vendors will be using ingredients from Slow Food’s Ark of Taste – a living catalogue of heirloom varieties and distinctive foods that are in danger of disappearing. The good news? You can help preserve these rare and unique ingredients – by eating them!
