Cleveland has become one of the Midwest's top dining destinations. The national food press - Gourmet, Food & Wine and Esquire - have praised Cleveland's chefs and innovative food scene. What many fail to realize, however, is that food provides nourishment to Clevelanders in a myriad of ways beyond outstanding restaurants.
Come hear from local entrepreneurs, farmers and chefs about the exciting and unique ways Clevelanders get and provide food to others. PechaKucha is a simple PowerPoint presentation format in which a speaker presents 20 images, each for 20 seconds. This event is free an open to those who wants to expand their palate - and their mind.
