Farm to Chef event moves to Visionary museum

August 27, 2012|by Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

More than 30 Baltimore chefs have been lined up for the 3rd annual Farm to Chef culinary competition. The event, produced by the American Institute of Wine & Food Baltimore chapter, partners chefs with local farms to create recipes for the 300 guests.

Formerly known as The Farmer and the Chef, the event is moving this year to the American Visionary Art Museum, where it will take place on Monday, Sept. 24 at 6:30 p.m.

Farm to Chef is a benefit for Days of Taste, an AIWF program that brings together farmers, chefs and community volunteers to introduce school children to the basic tenets of taste and to teach them how food travels from farm to table.

Members of the Baltimore Bartenders Guild will provide original cocktails using locally produced spirits and beers, and the evening includes live music and an auction.
