Dinner at Floriole featuring Food Writer Janine MacLachlan of RusticKitchen.com
For our June dinner, we are celebrating the farmers' market!
Our friend, Janine MacLachlan has recently published a beautiful book, Farmers' Markets of the Heartland, featuring the farmers, produce and chefs of the American Midwest. She explores not only the beauty of the market, but the communities that are formed through them and businesses, like Floriole, who started at the market and continue to showcase the bounty of our region.
Janine MacLachlan is a food writer and self-proclaimed farm groupie. Her writing and recipes have been featured in national magazines and 15 Tribune newspapers. An advocate for a delicious and nourishing food system, she has volunteered for Slow Food and Chicago's Green City Market, and blogs at RusticKitchen.com.
Please join Floriole and Janine for a five-course meal, featuring recipes from Farmers' Markets of the Heartland and lift a glass to our farming community. Books will be available for purchase and signing the night of the event.
