GENEVA, N.Y. — Come “meat” your farmer! Consumers, home cooks, chefs, restaurateurs, and food distributors are invited to meet regional livestock farmers and learn how to coordinate sourcing, serving, and consuming locally raised and processed meat (all cuts and kinds). In addition to meeting farmers of locally raised meats, guests will be able to enjoy tastings and view cooking demonstrations provided by area chefs to learn new ways to prepare local meat. Featured chefs will include:
- Carl Bray, Geneva On The Lake
- Brud Holland, The Café at Fox Run Vineyards
- Scott Riesenberger, The Ravinous Kitchen at Ravines Wine Cellars
- Orlando Rodriguez, Veraisons Restaurant at Glenora Wine Cellars
Those attending the event will depart with a better understanding of who raises local meat and where to buy it from -which farms and restaurants.
