About the Event
Farm to Fork 101 is excited to celebrate Five years of amazing connections with farmers, chefs and guests. We want to be able to connect with all of you that have supported us over the years but in order to stay safe and follow guidelines for so many people, we need to move the party to a virtual celebration! Join us on September 27, 2020 for a great event with lots of amazing things to see, do and be a part of. Check out everything below!.....
How It Works:
Guests will purchase a ticket by Monday, 9/21 at 8 pm.
Upon purchase, guests will select their preferred pickup location (or delivery-from location)
Meals will be available for pickup/delivery on Sunday, September 27th from 12 pm to 2 pm at designated locations. Shipping is also available in the lower 48 United States
Guests will receive an invitation to a live broadcast featuring all chefs, artisans, and more as we reheat and plate the dishes, discuss the backgrounds of the chefs and their restaurants - what brought them to Central New York.
This live virtual event will begin at 4 pm on Sunday, September 27th.
The broadcast will allow for chefs to give instructions on heating, plating, and pairing, as well as talk about the cuisines, their backgrounds, and the inspiration behind the dishes.
Guests will have the opportunity to eat "together" as our emcee will allow time between courses for conversation, Q&As, and connection between guests - all happening virtually.
