Sustainable Connections and the Bellingham Farmers Market announce a special Eat Local Month event, Shop With A Chef, on Sept. 15, 2018. Executive chef Todd Alan Martin from Hundred North will take a small group on a personalized tour of the Bellingham Farmers Market, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The group will get to know local family farmers and food artisans through one of Whatcom’s most talented chefs, taste local products, and peruse the bounty of harvest season. Each attendee will get $10 in market bucks to shop for ingredients on a recipe created by Todd special for this event. Learn how to shop like a chef, discover new flavors, and get inspired.
Chef Todd grew up in Spokane, spent many years cooking in Nashville, and considers himself an American chef. Tossing aside the stereotype of Eurocentric chefs using French and Italian styles, Todd draws inspiration from Native American, Mexican, and Central American traditions. His focus on local cooking traditions is a natural fit with his passion for sourcing ingredients locally. He’s cooked and traveled all over the world and still believes nothing compares to PNW ingredients and flavors in Bellingham.
Tickets for the event are $10 and available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/shop-with-the-chef-tickets-45384634664. More info at eatlocalfirst.org
