Local farmers and fishers will be providing the freshest and the best of their summer bounty so the chefs with the Northwest Washington Chefs Collaborative can prepare a complete local feast. This fundraiser will help to grow the collaborative's work in building relationships through farmer/chef mentorships, according to a news release. Money raised also will go toward Sustainable Connections’ Food to Bank On program.
Local chefs include Mataio Gillis of Ciao Thyme; Josh Silverman, previously of Dashi Noodle Bar and Nimbus; Will Annett of Pizza’zza; Mica Christensen of Keenan's on the Pier; Patrick Durgan from Western Washington University; Gabriel Claycamp of Jack Mountain Meats; and Arlené Mantha of 250 Flora. In addition to a gourmet local brunch, the event will have live music, lawn games, a food centric silent auction, specialty drinks and fresh-pressed juice pairings.
