The 3rd annual Let’s Talk About Food Festival—the region’s largest outdoor food celebration event returns to Copley Sq. this weekend. The free festival, which was founded by local journalist Louisa Kasdon, features discussions with experts on current food issues such as sustainability and GMOs, live interactive cooking demonstrations with local and celebrity chefs, kid friendly activities, healthy food sampling—all designed to change how we eat, grow, cook, buy, and sell food in the community.
I am completely humbled and honored to be judging the “Earth and Turf” burger competition among some of the top chefs in Boston. The chefs will be challenged to create their version of the “Earth and Turf” burger— a burger that has a lighter carbon footprint by using 20% less ground beef, but still satisfies even the most self-proclaimed meat lovers. This is not your average burger competition. Participants include: Tony Maws, Craigie On Main and Kirkland Tap and Trotter; Chris Coombs, Deuxave, Boston Chops and dbar; and Tony Rosenfeld, B.Good;. The burger recipes will go on the menus of each participating chef and will also be published on Boston.Com. This is going to be a great event and hope to see you all there!
