Dine with Pierre & OGS
A farm-to-table dinner to benefit OGS
with very special guest, Host, Pierre Geaux, aka Bill Whipple Saturday, March 12, 2016 at the Spring Conference. Join Organic Growers School on Saturday night at 5:30pm, directly following the last class, for an exclusive reception and organic, farm-to-table dinner in an elegant setting on the UNC Asheville campus. Celebrate local food and farmers as we extend the joy and connection of the day. All proceeds benefit the important work of Organic Growers School, and tickets can be purchased on a sliding scale.
Menu: Expect four delicious courses of expertly curated local foods: colorful samplers showcasing the best in local charcuterie, cheeses, and pickles, unique presentation and mouth watering main dishes for all palettes, plus delectable dessert. The forthcoming menu is in the works, and promises to showcase spring’s freshness, and WNC’s bounty.
Host: Very special Guest, Bill Whipple, aka Pierre Geaux, will host the OGS fundraising dinner with all the finesse of a French food snob. Pierre is a passionado for what the French call “Terroir” or local flavor. Recently released from detainment at Guantanamo Bay for telling US customs that he was a “Terroirist”, he found American cuisine there to be lacking in what he would say as, “Les choses interessant”. Despite this misunderstaning, Pierre is on a mission to teach Americans something about cuisine, and he encourages us to eat something “interesting” by exploring the local flavors of small farms. Pierre will be addressing the dinner audience with profound, esoteric, arrogant, and amusing insights related to food, culture, delight, and the heart.
Cost: Tickets to the Dine with Pierre & OGS can be purchased on a sliding scale from $75 to $125 per diner. Please be generous as the funds serve to spread support and education for organic growing in our region. If you wish to give additional donations to OGS, there is an option in the registration process.
Organic Growers School is a non-profit organization providing organic education since 1993. Our mission is to inspire, educate, and support people in our region to farm, garden, and live organically.
