Join Avedano’s and Slow Food Solano and make it A DAY OF ARTISAN BEEF BUTCHERY on Saturday October 15th, 1pm-5pm, at Soul Food Farm in Vacaville. This second annual fundraiser event features demos by master butchers and food by top Bay Area chefs, with proceeds benefiting Bay Area agricultural projects.
Master butchers Angela Wilson (Avedano’s), Chris Arentz, Dave the Butcher, Zach Gero (Shopper’s Corner, Santa Cruz), and Josh Kleinsmith (Piedmont Grocery, Oakland) will break down a side of aged Agricola grassfed beef to demonstrate the different styles of American and Italian cuts. They’ll also hold a Q&A, and all of the cuts will be distributed to lucky guests by way of a drawing. While you’re enjoying the afternoon on the farm, indulge in a beautiful spread of food from participating chefs J.W. Foster of The Fairmont Hotel, Tia Harrison of Sociale, and Paul Schroeder of Monti’s Rotisserie & Bar. Plus John Fink of The Whole Beast will be grilling Soul Food Farm chickens and talking about open-fire cooking. And to drink: artisan micro brews from Pacific Brewing Laboratory and La Trappe.
The event is a fundraiser for Slow Food Solano’s school gardens project, the Farmer-Veteran-Coalition, and Gleason Ranch. Tickets are $100 online. 6046 Pleasants Valley Rd., Vacaville.
