Celebrated chefs of the region will join farmers, artisans and stewards of the land on Sun, Sept 13th for WHOO COOKS FOR YOU? – a feast of home-grown food and Ohio wine and beer to benefit the Glen Helen Raptor Center, 1075 State Route 343 in Yellow Springs.
With a name borrowed from the classic call of the barred owl – whoo cooks for you! – this sixth annual event explores the connection between the earth, the food on your plate, and supporting a healthy habitat for all, said Glen Helen Executive Director Nick Boutis.
Guests will enjoy a special tour of the Raptor Center followed by a flavorful, six-course feast, sourced by local area growers and prepared by Anne Kearney of Rue Dumaine, Carrie Walters of Dorothy Lane Market, Doug McGregor of Springfield’s Seasons Bistro, Elizabeth Wiley of Meadowlark, Maria Walusis of Nibbles, and Liz Valenti of Wheat Penny.
Enjoy a culinary adventure that will bring together chefs, raptors and you, our stewards of the land and sky. Guests will be seated at one long table winding its way across the Raptor Center lawn and joined by area growers and farmers. End your evening with an exceptional decadent dessert that will melt your senses and send you home with the satisfied feeling that you have indeed made a difference in the rehabilitation and care of Raptor’s at Glen Helen.
