Slow Food Charlotte is working with the chefs of PCG, culinary students, and an NC apple grower, Lee Calhoun, to collaborate on a whole product lifecycle experience. Chefs and students will go to Lee’s farm to hear him speak, pick apples, and build relationships. Then in the following days the chefs will build menu items that utilize and add value to Lee’s apples, making the experience complete.
Bridging the Gaps in Our Food System
As a non-profit, we look to connect and to bridge the gaps in our food system sustainably. This event will introduce chefs and students to a producer and gives them a platform to experiment with new dishes and expand their network of both suppliers and professional contacts. These are the opportunities Slow Food makes possible so all parts of the food system can expand their resiliency.
