Volunteer Park CafeGaler & 17th
This summer chef Ericka Burke and I are partnering up to host a series of intimate seasonal dinners inspired by Volunteer Park Cafe's garden. GoGo Green Garden, began tending VPC's garden last spring. Ericka & I have developed a great chef-gardener relationship, and are super excited about plans for a fruitful garden. As a cook myself, I work to guide the garden towards delicious meals, and the cafe staff has had a blast learning about growing and harvesting food.
Each dinner will begin at 6pm in VPC's backyard with a garden tour/chat with me and a seasonal non-alcoholic drink. At 6:30pm, guests will move into the cafe to enjoy a multi-course family style meal at the communal table. Burke's menu will showcase the bounty from the garden and other locally sourced organic ingredients- really, whatever catches her eye.
The cost is $45/person, and includes a little takeaway gift-plus garden pointers and maybe even a recipe. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. Please call the cafe at 206.328.3155 or book online at alwaysfreshgoodness.com.

Culinary Summer Camp is a 5 day event, renowned for its focus on all things gastronomic! As Tom mentions, each day includes a wealth of eating and drinking, but it also includes cooking demonstrations with accompanying food and beverage tastings, hands on cooking, field trips, and most importantly, intimate access to highly regarded chefs and cook book authors that would otherwise be difficult to gain.
