On July 15th, 2012 at CUESA’s second annual Summer Celebration, guests will graze and mingle while meeting the people behind their food. They’ll fill up on seasonal fare and leave knowing they’ve provided much-needed support for CUESA’s ongoing education programs, including free cooking demonstrations, low-cost kitchen skill-building classes, the Schoolyard to Market program, and sustainability scholarships that help farmers become leaders in their field.
This walk-around tasting event will take place downstairs in the Ferry Building and will feature a whole beast carving station, a raffle, a photo booth courtesy of Magbooth and live music.
Because local farmers and artisans are at the center of everything they do, each scrumptious bite will highlight ingredients sourced from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Tickets are $125, $85 of which is a tax deductible donation.
Tickets are available here: CUESA Summer Celebration.
