This evening, Anthony Nicalo will be joined by Jason Pleym, founder of Two Rivers Specialty Meats. Two Rivers is a purveyor of fine meats that are free of antibiotics, hormones and chemical free additives. While you may already know that all meat is not created equal, Jason will shed light on what is really going on in grocers and butcher shops. Taste naturally raised meats paired with natural wines.
You will leave knowing what questions to ask to make sure you are getting the meat you think you are paying for. Guests will receive a copy of “Righteous Porkchop” by Nicolette Hahn Niman.
The package of 6 events may be purchased for $360.00. The full series is a great value, with net proceeds to benefit programs supporting transparent, sustainable food systems. It includes expert-led events, 6 fantastic books (details below), canapes paired with wines, a gourmet picnic lunch, a full wine tasting and an opportunity to meet Michael Pollan. There are only 30 seats available, but if you miss out or won’t be in Vancouver, you can join us streaming live via Ustream.

(Individual tickets in this series cost $65.00, with the exception of the “UBC Farm Fundraiser with Michael Pollan” for $45.00)
