The green community flocks to this annual event; the food + socializing are some of the best you can get in the Midlands. Each chef's dish must feature at least one locally, sustainably produced major ingredient, and chefs really try to outdo each other with innovation and quality. This fun, friendly party was a sold out success in 2011 and 2012, and is sure to be a "don't miss" event for foodies in 2013.
