Learn more about locally sourced food and visit with chefs who are part of the movement.

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.
