Join Chef Sebastian Carosi founder of The New England Farm 2 Fork Project and SlowFood Portland at the Portland Museum of Art for an evening of beautiful art and bountiful edible commodities... Take a long, slow look at the exquisite still-life paintings in 'Objects of Wonder' (through June 6th), and savor some of the best Maine has to offer in locally grown food... The guest speaker is Nancy Harmon Jenkins, a nationally known food writer and historian who resides in Italy as well as the coast of Maine... She is an expert in sustainable agriculture and farm-to-market connections, and will speak about Maine's bounty... Enjoy the evening with friends and meet new 'local foodies' who share your interest in promoting Maine grown food. Proceeds from the evenings event will benefit culinary education programs at the Portland Museum of Art...

The New England Farm 2 Fork Project will be offering-
mini grass-fed local beef burgers on a homemade sesame seed bun with sebastian's smoky heirloom tomato catsup and farmstead local cheddar

harris farm- grass-fed beef
raven hill orchard- organic sesame seed buns
silvery moon creamery- r&r cheddar
tnef2fp- smoky heirloom tomato catsup

Inspired by Edward Weston's Pepper (circa 1930)
We smoked peppers, tomatoes and onions over organic local applewood to make catsup for the burgers.... We choose the burger to signify the McDonalds that inspired Carlo Petrini to create SlowFood several years ago.....

Join us to raise local food supply awareness....
