Homegrown Delights : The Passion for Local Eats & Urban Farming at Witte Museum
The next Salud! Culinary Nights event, ” Homegrown Delights : The Passion for Local Eats & Urban Farming” at the Witte Museum on September 12th at 6:30 pm will be showcasing a three-course farm-to-table dinner by San Antonio chefs who are passionate about “local.”
Chef Edward Villarreal of Ocho, also the host of culinary series, Homegrown Chef, will be creating the main course; Chef Paul Morales of the new Smoke Shack Meat Market will be presenting the first course, and Pastry Chef Ernest Lopez, formerly of Sustenio, will be presenting the dessert course. Please see the menu below for details.
“I’ve had the opportunity to cook in the Witte’s kitchen several times – for these amazing Salud! dinners and also while we were shooting the first season of Homegrown Chef, and it’s always a pleasure. I’m really excited about this one because we get to raise awareness about local, homegrown, sustainable foods and why we should all be supporting it, from the chefs to our high schools. The food system is in desperate need of attention and this is our way of continuing that conversation,” said Chef Edward Villarreal.
Koen King Stokes with local urban farm, Veg’d Out Urban Farms, who sells his produce at the Pearl Farmers Market and local rancher, Loncito Cartwright and Lily Ross of Peaceful Pork, will discuss their passion for urban farming and contributions to local kitchens and chefs around the city in an effort to sustainable feed future generations.
