An Evening with Mark Bittman
As a chef and the author of How To Cook Everything and VB6, New York Times op-ed writer Mark Bittman is interested in the people who source what he cooks--and in the economic difficulties even the best farmers can face in making a living.  He has written frequently on the need for us to pay more attention to the economics of raising and selling healthy food.

"An Evening with Mark Bittman" is a joint event organized by The Berry Center and Locust Grove.  It will celebrate the successes Louisville has seen in improving rural and urban ties, and the vibrant food economy that connects rural Kentucky to Louisville.

Locust Grove is a historic home museum on 55 rolling acres where Louisville founder and Revolutionary War hero George Rogers Clark spent his last years.  As one of the oldest farm sites in Louisville, it is a fitting spot for a night devoted to a discussion of the business of local food.

The night begins at 5:30 under a tent in the gardens at Locust Grove with cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres made by award-winning chef Kathy Cary of Lilly's, a Louisville pioneer in sourcing her ingredients locally.  Mr. Bittman will speak at 6:45.  

At this event The Berry Center will announce the beginnings of a new program to improve access to financing for farmers.  

Locust Grove is raising funds for research into 19th century agricultural practices in Kentucky.

$75 of the $125 ticket cost is tax-deductible.
