March of the Chefs @ Lula Cafe

Slow Food Chicago presents the March of the Chefs tonight at 6:30pm at Lula Cafe, 2537 N. Kedzie. Chefs from across the country who attended the Terra Madre Congress in Turin, Italy last October, will be holding special benefit dinners in their restaurants to share their Terra Madre experiences. A portion of the proceeds from these dinners will go towards Slow Food Nation, a four-day celebration to promote and reinvigorate America’s diverse food traditions, planned for May 1-4, 2008, in San Francisco. Lula owner-chefs Lea Tshilds and Jason Hammel will host a three-course dinner featuring the products of local Dekalb organic farmer Adrian Plapp. Tickets are $40 per person and space is limited — no reservations are being taken — so you better arrive early.
