Eats for Equity returns Saturday, February 8 to cook up a local feast


Fri, Jan 24th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. - Growers, artisans and all who appreciate good local food are invited to a special dinner celebration on Saturday, February 8. That’s when Eat for Equity will once again team up with Lanesboro Local to celebrate the local bounty. Hosts for this third annual E4E dinner event will be David and Linda Tacke at their beautiful first-floor home in the Churchill School House Condos.

Bring your Valentine. Bring your friends. Bring the whole family. You don’t need tickets or reservations. Your admission is a donation to Lanesboro Local’s 2014 education project.

The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with an assortment of delectable appetizers and local libations. Snack and sip while you catch up on news about the transitioning Marketplace and the new independent grocery business to take its place. Find out about hands-on, how-to classes and events that Lanesboro Local is launching that may interest you.

At 6:15 a gourmet dinner will be served. Courses include a Pomegranate & Pear Salad with Gorgonzola and candied pecans on baby greens with a champagne vinaigrette dressing, and a delicious Rustic Boeuf Bourguignon served with artisanal bread. Dessert will be a Grand Marnier Chocolate Mousse made with Kappers cream whipped with orange zest and topped with raspberries. The menu incorporates many ingredients that have been donated by or purchased from area growers and producers.

Organization of this third annual dinner event is based on the E4E model. Execution is headed up by locals Enid Dunn and Nancy Martinson, with the help of dozens of area volunteers who will prepare and serve the meal. The dinner will celebrate Lanesboro Local’s progress over the past five years and its new directions in 2014 – class offerings, fieldtrips and programming aimed at enriching the diets, the health and lifestyle possibilities of residents of this area.

Learning opportunities in the planning include: Learn to make your own fermented foods that enhance health. Or try your hand at Plein aire painting in the great outdoors. Master the basics of cheese making from fresh local milk. Discover the ease of food drying and preserving your garden bumper crops, and more. Or suggest a class or fieldtrip you’d like to take – or teach.

Eat for Equity is a national non-profit venture founded by Emily Torgrimson, who grew up in this area. As the E4E video [Read the Rest]
