From Farm to Table: The Culinary Connection

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020 
Time: 4 – 5: 15 p.m. MT 
Platform: Zoom

Never has understanding where, exactly, our food comes from been as critical as it is now. Starting with farmers and producers, we will explore the food supply chain and how it affects local businesses who rely on it.

Three well-known chefs will share their experiences and insights into the future of the food industry and what we are learning from COVID-19.

Stick around after the panel discussion for a live cooking demonstration with Chef Jenny B from Jane Bond BBQ. She will be cooking up Turkey Dinner Leftover Fried Dumplings Paired with Cranberry Sesame Soy Sauce. Jump into the fall season and learn how to turn your turkey dinner leftovers into a fun and tasty appy!

You can find the recipe with ingredients here. Feel free to cook along with us, or sit back and enjoy and save the recipe for later.
