Farm-to-Table Dinner and Lecture presented by Squaw Valley Institute
Date: Aug 18, 2012 (Sat)


evening Farm-to-Table Dinner Brings Bestselling Authors of “What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets” to Tahoe. Menzel and D’Aluisio will bring their conversation and insights gained while producing the book, along with a photographic presentation, to Tahoe for farm-to-table dinner lecture presented by Squaw Valley Institute on Saturday, August 18. The dinner, curated by Highlands Dinner Club, a mobile culinary and social laboratory, will bring together Tahoe’s finest chefs for a five-course meal inspired by the book and sourced through locally produced ingredients. From Masai warriors to a Tibetan yak herder to an Arctic hunter, the people at the heart of the book not only give us food for thought on their own daily fare, but also the overall implications of the modern diet and its impact on the planet.
