2015 Good Food Festival & Conference: Chicago (& Twitter Chat!) #GFFChi #GoodFoodChi

As many of my readers already know, I’m a real advocate for eating local foods. Wherever I am, GFF chatwhatever I’m doing, I am always in search of foods that are grown or made as local as possible. I have even included an eating local part to my “Affording Organics Series.” That being said, can you guess one of my favorite regional events of the year? The Good Food Festival & Conference in Chicago, of course!

The 11th Annual Good Food Festival & Conference is coming up March 19 – 21! Presented by FamilyFarmed, the annual celebration of the fast-growing Good Food movement will bring together some of the nation’s leaders in local, sustainable fare — from farmers to chefs, food entrepreneurs to policy makers — to discuss the movement that’s transforming the way we eat. Held at UIC Forum on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus, the three-day symposium will feature speakers, panel discussions, cooking demos, workshops, plus Localicious, a premier annual food & drink tasting event! “We’re in our 11th year and proud to say we have America’s longest-running sustainable and local food trade show,” says Jim Slama, FamilyFarmed founder and president. “We’re excited to have so many amazing leaders in the Good Food movement on board, including a phenomenal roster of local chefs.” Below are some top picks from the Festival!

    The one confusing thing about Luut it is, they don’t have clips
    for every television show or movie listed on the site. They also tackle family problems that the
    characters will need to resolve themselves in order to live happily
    ever after. As they say that the enthusiasm is priceless
    thing. Instead the students focus on other things like work and family.
