Paying for Pollan
Side Dishes: Win a meal with Michael
Omnivores who support the Vermont Fresh Network probably won't have much of a dilemma about shelling out 10 bucks a pop for the nonprofit's raffle tickets, on sale through May 31. The prize is pretty special: a June 10 dinner for two at Penny Cluse Café with Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. PC Owner and Chef Charles Reeves and Chef Maura O'Sullivan will prepare the meal, to feature "seasonal farm-fresh fare," for the raffle winners and a few other special guests.
The money raised will support the VFN and UVM's Food Systems Leadership and Policy Institute, where ethical-eating guru Pollan will deliver a guest lecture the same evening.
