The weeklong programs that LoraLee and Rick Misterly teach at their Quillisascut Farm School in Rice, Wash., have become the training ground for a generation of sustainability-minded Seattle chefs. Help send new cooks to the school by attending a benefit picnic on Sunday afternoon at Rainier Square to raise money for the school's scholarship fund.
At this Urban Picnic, some of the city's best chefs, including John Sundstrom of Lark, Ryan Tateishi of Canlis, Seth Caswell of the pending Emmer & Rye, and Dustin Ronspies of Art of the Table are cooking -- and you may get a chance to rub elbows with Robin Leventhal of this season's Top Chef. You'll also hear from two chefs who are alums. Local beer, wine, and live music are part of the deal. Note: tomorrow (Thursday) is the last day to get tickets.
Sunday, Sept. 20, 1-4 p.m.
Location: Rainier Square Rooftop Courtyard, 1333 Fifth Ave. (entrance upstairs, across from the 5th Avenue Theatre).
