Audubon Greenwich will host the second annual Sustainable Food & Farm Expo on May 31 from 10am until 5pm. This year’s Expo will showcase food producers, retailers, a celebrity chef and farmers who will teach guests how to prepare and enjoy a wide variety of local and sustainably grown foods, plus grow some of their own. The Sustainable Food & Farm Expo is a production of Audubon Greenwich, the Fairfield Green Food Guide and Strawberry and Sage aimed at educating the public about the diverse sustainable food community.

The public is invited to enjoy 20 food exhibitors and vendors plus talks, demonstrations and tastings with a wide range of experts every 30 minutes. Snacks, beverages and lunch are available for purchase onsite from Grass Rxoots and Fleisher’s Craft Butchery. Visit FairfieldGreenFoodGuide.com for a complete special events calendar.

Chef Silvia Baldini of Strawberry and Sage will offer three different culinary demonstrations and tastings where locally sourced ingredients take center stage. Educational tastings include organic, micro-lot, Guatemalan coffee with Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters; five local honeys with the American Honey Tasting Society; single varietal extra virgin olive oils with Olivette; and artisan cheeses with Greenwich Cheese Company.

“We have curated a day chock full of special events so anyone with an appetite for new resources, fresh ideas and a gastronomic adventure will leave feeling sated,” says Analiese Paik, founder of the Fairfield Green Food Guide.
