Special Event on Sunday

Posted 3/23/2013 10:08am by Val Kennedy.

Hello Farmers Market Fans

I want to alert you all to a special event that is occurring tomorrow (Sunday March 24th).  Slow Food Pittsburgh is sponsoring a fund raiser for the "Better Cheese for Pittsburgh" Cheese Scholarship.  The event is at Legume Bistro.  Food and drinks will be prepared by some of the best restaurant people in Pittsburgh.  Everyone involved is donating their time.  Legume owners Trevett and Sarah Hooper are making their restaurant available for the event.  


In addition to all the chefs and mixologists who have given their time and talent, four cheese makers will be there in person to share samples, stories, and sell their cheese.


It's a cocktail party format and runs from 5 to 7 pm.  Forty dollars includes appetizers, cocktails, tax and tip.  This is a great value considering all the food and cocktails that will be served at the event.  Please check out the website for more information.

I hope you can make it.  Please also help spread the word.


David
