Beneath the Surface
Farm-to-Fork presents the launch of our brunch and lecture series, Beneath the Surface. Our goal is to facilitate a memorable brunch experience -- one that builds community, provides education around the food we consume, and empowers us to be better consumers.
Enjoy an open mimosa bar, live music and a delicious family-style brunch of quiche, biscuits, local cured fish, charcuterie and more from Farm to Fork and Fine & Rare.
Our theme for this year speaks to our desire to unearth and uncover the corners of our food world that, for most of us, remain hidden. While this focus is thematic, it is also literal. We’ll explore what lies beneath the surface of the land and sea that keeps us humans well-fed or, in some cases, at-risk.
