It's that time of year again - Baton Rouge's premiere farm-to-table dinner event! Dinner in the Field is a fundraising event for Slow Food Baton Rouge as well as a showcase of the culinary arts, local farms and food traditions. The dinner will feature locally grown foods selected and prepared by area chefs. A cocktail 90 (90 minutes instead of a boring old hour) will begin at 4 with live music, cocktails, wine and small plates. The six-course dinner will begin at 5:30 pm featuring local ingredients. Each course will be accompanied by a wine paring. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets in advance. Early bird tickets are available until April 1st. A chefs table (8 persons) with more intimate seating, wine pairings and interaction with the chefs is also available. The Dinner in the Field is a benefit with proceeds dedicated entirely to Baton Rouge's only comprehensive farm to school pilot program Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge (GHBR). GHBR pilot programming is currently in Dufrocq and FLAIM elementary schools in Baton Rouge.When: Sunday, May 1st 4pmWhere: Announcement Coming Soon!

A big thanks to BREADA's Red Stick Mobile Farmers' Market, Culinard chefs, BREC On the Geaux, and the Mayor's Healthy BR, for making Friday's Chefs Outreach to the Community day at Dufrocq Elementary a success!
Over 70 students tasted and voted on 4 healthy snacks, recieved tokens to purchase fresh produce through the Red Stick Sprouts program, and got to get active with BREC's mobile games and activities. The event meant a lot to capping off a great year of Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge at Dufrocq. Looking forward to round 2 next week with BRFLAIM students at the Leo S Butler Community Center!
