If you’re interested in food policy, organic food, or the slow food movement, consider attending the Family Farmed EXPO March 11-13 at the UIC Forum, 725 West Roosevelt Road. Here are a few highlights we’re looking forward to:
- We’re going to the Localicious Party. City Provisions, Province, and Lula Cafe will be there, so we expect a ton of great locally sourced food!
- On Saturday, we plan to attend foodie-oriented workshops like “You Ate the Whole Thing” featuring Rob Levitt, Mado; Ehran Ostrreicher, E&P Meats; Paul Kahan; and Mike Sula talking about using the whole animal. More on the workshops here.
- If workshops aren’t your thing, then there are celebrity chef demos all day Saturday. Rick Bayless leads the lineup, and it’s a great way for foodies to get up close and personal with their favorite chefs. See the full schedule here.
There is something at every price point, ranging from $350 for all three days to $15 for the Local Food Festival. Check here for ticket information. We hope to see you there. If you can’t make it, follow along on Twitter with the #FFExpo hashtag.
