An Incredible Feast

An Incredible Feast walks the talk. In order to cut back on trash, the outdoor showcase of local chefs and farm ingredients is encouraging attendees to bring their own plates and forks to use at this year’s event. But don’t think this stinting approach to silverware translates to skimpiness of flavor. Chef Amy McCray of Eva, a five-year veteran of the feast, can reel off a mouthwatering list of dishes she’s cooked for it in years past: North Carolina pork barbeque, rustic Greek eggplant with walnuts, savory zucchini bread with smoked salmon. She’s excited to find out which farmer she’s paired with this year, she says; though she goes to the farmers market every week, at An Incredible Feast, “you get to know these farmers better,” she says. (Two dozen other local chefs will likewise be matched with area farms.) So grab your dishes and come join the agrarian bonding. All proceeds benefit the Good Farmer Fund. REBECCA COHEN
