A Syrup-y Evening

TPB-DrillingSpile.jpgMaple syrup maker Tim Burton (pictured, of southern Indiana's Maplewood Farm) will be teaming up with Wirtz Beverage and chef Mark Payne of deca (160 E. Pearson) for an evening of eating (a three-course "Bourbon and Burton"-themed meal) and learning about how Indiana's foodstuffs are making a comeback from author David Hoppe, who will be signing copies of his book Food for Thought: an Indiana Harvest.

If you can't make this meal, consider heading down to Maplewood Farm for the National Maple Syrup Festival, which runs March 2-3 and 9-10.
