BLOG POST 27 / FARM TO TABLE: A TASTE OF OUR NEXT DINNER PARTY!

We're bursting with excitement about our next dinner party! Which is why it's such a joy to write this blog post and give you the first peek at what we're planning.

Picking a theme for each dinner party is always tricky -- there are so many great things about the Central Valley that we want to explore and share with our readers. Plus, it has to be something we can build an entire feature around. So, there's a lot to consider. The one thing we kept coming back to as we were brainstorming ideas for 2018 was agriculture. It's just so fundamental to our community's identity. So we thought we'd gather some local folks from both sides of the table (those who grow the food and those who cook with it) for a fresh discussion of fresh food. 

Expanding upon our first event ("Dreamers Who Dine" / Fall 2017), our upcoming dinner party and feature will incorporate more of the elements we've always wanted to bring into the magazine: fashion, recipes, essays, etc. As well as new contributors and, drum roll, new guests! So, without further ado, here are the guests who will sit down to eat food and discuss food come June: 

Shayna Telesmanic / Young Chef’s Academy
Rick Ambrose / Food Commons Fresno
Janna Melkonian / Rappit Up
Donna Mott / Ooh de lolli
Gianna Dinuzzo / Ooooby
Luke Fisher / 559 Garden Cocktails
See Thao / Mao’s Farm

We can't wait to share another meal with you. Follow along on social media as we gather all the elements for a perfect gathering. Cheers!
