‎ALLocal Dinner – A Conversation about Localizing Food at nourish in Lexington

SBN hosts “A Conversation about Localizing Food,” the 12th installment of the ALLocal Dinner Series on January 23, 2012.  Join us at nourish for a delicious meal and a thoughtful discussion as Karen Masterson, founder and owner of nourish in Lexington Center, serves up a responsibly sourced and reasonably priced, delectable three-course meal.

Entree options include nourish‘s Famous Meatloaf made with Vermont Quality ground Beef and local vegetables (hearty and delicious, it’s not your mama’s meatloaf!), Local Seafood, or Local Vegan Tempeh from 21st Century Food in Jamaica Plain.

At the 2011 Boston Local Food Festival, nourish was the Local Champion restaurant. They had the most locally sourced meal, and the most sustainable servings, exemplifying the Boston Local Food Festival mantra.

We return to nourish for an ALLocal Dinner to honor this accomplishment and to engage in conversation around Localizing our Food System. Our inspiring speakers include nourish’s Karen Masterson and JD Kemp, founder of Crop Circle Kitchen and Organic Renaissance/Food Ex.

Karen Masterson, founder and owner of nourish in Lexington Center has been a champion of environmental and social justice for over 30 years.  She is a former board member of SBN and supports local, independent farms, fisheries, and businesses everyday at her restaurant.  She will be serving up a delectable three-course meal staying true to her mantra of Responsibly Sourced, Reasonably Priced.

At the 2011 Boston Local Food Festivalnourish was the Local Champion restaurant.  They included the most locally sourced meal, with clear signage, and the most sustainable servings at $5 or less.  Soup was served in a bread bowl, so only a compostable spoon was used for service!  Karen exemplifies the movement the Boston Local Food Festival promotes.  We return to nourish for an ALLocal Dinner to honor this accomplishment and to engage in conversation around Localizing our Food System.

Karen will speak about what Localizing Food means to her and her restaurant along with other guest speakers including JD Kemp.  Kemp is an active member of SBN, is founder of Crop Circle Kitchen in Jamaica Plain and Organic Renaissance/Food Ex, an inventive food distribution system with an online platform that allows buyers and sellers to connect over an open marketplace.  More guest speakers to be announced.
