Here in Philadelphia, we’re lucky to have a number of organizations who make it their work to increase access to local food. Among them is one called Fair Food. They work to increase access to locally grown food for both consumers and restaurants, while also promoting humane, sustainable practices.
Every March, they throw a fundraiser called The Brewer’s Plate that’s one of the best food and beer events of the Philly eating year. More than fifty local restaurants, brewers, bakers and food producers gather and offer up tastes of some of their best tidbits. This year it’s taking place on Sunday, March 11, from 6-9 p.m. at the National Constitution Center.
Being that there will be all manner of artisanal pickles, preserves and cheeses on offer, the folks at Fair Food thought that my local readers might be interested in attending this year and have offered my readers a discount code. You can get a general admission ticket (normally $75) for $65 a piece if you use the code foodINjars2012TBP when you buy your tickets.
I’ll be there wandering and tasting, so if you come, make sure to find me and say hi. Madame Fromage will also be there, slicing cheese and professing her love of all things dairy, so seek her out if you have any cheesy questions.
