Foodie Events Fill Fall's Calendar

| No Comments

A symphony (cacaphony? drumbeat?) of programs for foodies coming up in the next few weeks. It's a full menu of useful evenings.

We begin with a first-time effort called SLASH, acronym for Seattle's Land and Sea Harvest Festival. It's co-sponsored by the new bible of local food, Edible Seattle (Cornichon's a contributor to the current issue) and Herban Feast, the lofty culinary venue in SODO. Takes place Sunday, October 11th from noon to 5; Proceeds benefit FareStart and Food Lifeline. Admission ($50) includes a smorgasbord of delicacies prepared entirely from local bounty. For tickets, click here.

Then it's on to "You Are What You Tweet," an evening at the Mayflower Hotel organized by PR maven Karen Rosenzweig (who bills herself as The Incredible Chef) to encourage more use of social media, especially Twitter, by restaurants. It's on Monday, October 19th, from 6 to 8:30. Tickets ($50 for another week, then $65) here.

Next, an evening described as Food Summit at Town Hall, co-sponsored by Slow Food Seattle and the Farm Worker Justice Project. Erika Lesser, executive director of Slow Food USA, will lead a panel discussion titled "Good, Clean, Fair Food--Can We Have It All?" It's on Wednesday, October 21st from 7 to 9. Tickets ($10) here.

And last but hardly least, Foodportunity, the second of Keren Brown's networking events for members of the Seattle food community. (Brown's a tireless promoter; she also organized FoodSnap, high-level workshops with New York food photographer Lou Manna and writes her own food blog.) By the way, Brown's first event, back in September was also about social media (with Cornichon on the panel); Rosenzweig was in the audience and was inspired to create her own venture as a result. The next Foodportunity features successful three local restaurateurs (Ethan Stowell, Thierry Rautureau and Kurt Dammeier) with tips for "making it" in Seattle. Monday, November 2nd, 6 to 8:30 PM at Palace Ballroom. Tickets ($25 plus tax for another week, then $30) here.

And if it's just dinner you're looking for, there's Urban Eats all month, featuring three-course meals for 30 bucks at 39 local restaurants. Used to be, this was a bargain, but these days, frankly, you can stay under $30 at almost every dinner house in town. Yeah, Urban Eats is on Facebook. Twitter, too.
