EduCulture’s Northwest Foodshed Series: Join us for a Fall Farm to Table Dinner

Sunday, November 9, 2014; 4-7 pm

Hosted at Mossback
26185 Ohio Avenue NE, Kingston, WA

**********
Know where your foods come from
 by the patience displayed while putting them up, while peeling, skinning, coring or gutting them, while pit-roasting, poaching or fermenting them, while canning, salting or smoking them, while arranging them on a plate for our eyes to behold
. Know where your food comes from by the slow savoring of each and every morsel, by letting their fragrances lodge in your memory reminding you of just exactly where you were the very day that you became blessed by each of their distinctive flavors.
– Gary Nabhan, A Terroir-ist’s Manifesto for Eating in Place

**********

Taste your way through four courses of the late fall harvest and celebrate in the spirit of convivial gratitude for the bounty of our Northwest foodshed through a slow and authentic farm to table dining experience.

About Mossback & The Food Shed The Food Shed’s objective is to cultivate conscious consumption by advocating local and sustainable food sources and cycles. They strive to be stewards of our own foodshed by providing local food experiences, enriching relationships between micro-producers, growers and local consumers, and modeling a “cradle to cradle” food hub that is centered in a deep local economy. The Food Shed makes sure every step along the food chain, from production to recycling, works in a cyclical and durable progression. We are working to pioneer new ways of collaboration and food interdependence, which in turn encourages farm literacy and folk culture and micro economic viability from the root of the community.
