The Whole Hog: Day 3 at the Family Farmed EXPO


Attendees sampled greens at the Family Farmed EXPO trade show.

Saturday was the third and final day of the Family Farmed EXPO, and we went for the whole hog with top Chicago restaurateurs Paul Kahan (BlackbirdAvecPublican) and Rob Levitt (Mado) who joined Ehran Ostrreicher from E & P Meats and Greg Gunthorp of Gunthorp Farms on a panel about the importance of eating and/or using an entire animal.

Paul Kahan talks about the importance of using the whole animal and how he does that in his restaurants.

Then we enjoyed a series of community focused sessions and cooking demos throughout the day that drew a crowd. Presentations included information about urban gardening, raising chickens in the city, eating organic on a dime, eating from farm to table, and more.

Have a look at our full photo set, and watch for more information about eating well as we sort through our tweets, notes, and thoughts on the subject. Until then, as always, happy dining!
