I was lucky enough to attend a special event at The Citizen Hotel today called Meet Your Maker. Chef Michael Tuohy of the Grange is famous for being a locavore and into sustainability. Here was an event to showcase the suppliers who provide all the wonderful meats, seafoods, produce, etc.
Represented were Riverdog Farm, Del Rio Botanicals, Watanabe Farm, North Valley Farm, Capay Organics, Vierra Farm, Katz & Co., Port Seafood, Del Monte Meats, Niman Ranches, Produce Express, Matchbook Winery, Tito's Vodka, and Woodford Reserve Bourbon.

It took place on the 7th floor terrace, a lovely tented space overlooking Caesar Chavez Park. A lovely touch was that they used biodegradable, sustainable cutlery and dishware made from potato starch and palm leaves.

It didn't hurt that there was some good food to nibble on too. I had to have a fried squash blossom from Vierra Farm since Chef Tuohy buys his blossoms every week on the Follow the Chef tours.
All in all a very nice event.
