Alice Waters, who helped pioneer California cuisine and the slow-food movement, will co-host the Farm-to-Fork Capital Forum Series.

Farm-to-fork forum offers a special invitation

Published: Wednesday, Apr. 16, 2014 - 12:49 pm

Sacramento’s farm-to-fork persona continues to evolve.

The latest incarnation is the Farm-to-Fork Capital Forum Series, to be held at 2 p.m. April 23 in the auditorium of the California Public Employees' Retirement System at 400 Q St., Sacramento.

Mayor Kevin Johnson has invited Sam Kass to the party. He’s the senior adviser for nutrition policy at the White House, reports Mark Anderson of the Sacramento Business Journal. Kass is also invited to the farm-to-fork dinner at Sacramento Charter High School, where the tables will be laden with bounty from Edible Sac High. It will be sponsored by California cuisine guru Alice Waters and restaurateur Patrick Mulvaney.
