29may6:30 pmFeatured18 Reasons: Diet for a Hot Planet Cool Foods Dinner


Event Details

A four-course meal paired with wine, hosted by Anna Lappé. Open to all 18 Reasons members.

What to eat in a drought? I’ll be joining 18 Reasons members for a fun and enlivening evening’s exploration of climate science both local and global that begins on our dinner plate. We will savor ingredients from the earth-friendly to the endangered as we imagine what future generations might find in their farmers’ markets and grocery stores if the earth continues the trend of ‘global weirding.’ We will learn how farmers are confronting the current drought, what challenges our agricultural industry faces, and how we can support climate-friendly farming and ranching. Through our wine pairings we will explore trends in organic and biodynamic wines that endeavor to bring sustainability to the industry. 

I’ll share stories from Diet for a Hot Planet and bring tales from my latest work at the Small Planet Institute and the Real Food Media Contest. Throughout the evening, we will highlight art, video, and music portraying or inspired by our changing climate.

All attendees will receive a signed hardcover copy of Diet for a Hot Planet.

18 Reasons chef, Michelle McKenzie, will be cooking – menu coming soon!
