Grow Benzie and Northern Michigan Culinary Arts Community host bi-weekly dinner discussions through the winter. Meals are made from scratch and guest speakers lead the friendly conversation and idea exchange with attendees. “State of the Small Farms” will focus on the current status of small farms in Northern Michigan. Paul May (May Farm, Frankfort) and Bernie Ware (Ware Farm, Bear Lake) will share success stories and struggles from farmers throughout the region. Immediately following the presentation, there will be a free screening of the documentary film “In Defense of Food” based on the #1 New York Times bestselling book of the same name by author Michael Pollan. Sponsored by NW Michigan Food & Farming Network.
Tuesday, April 5th, 6pm
Public is welcome.
NMCAC dinners are prepared by local foodservice professionals and feature locally-produced ingredients. There is a suggested donation of $9/person with all “profits” going towards NMCAC’s 2016 Culinary Scholarship fund, to be awarded to a Benzie County student.
