Smoked walleye with Portuguese potato salad from Green City Growers


Lentil crepe, almond basmati rice, local cucumber and radish ceviche from Pier W


Oyster and beef tongue taco with ranchero, pickled onion, and Asian greens from Parker’s Downtown


Venison sausage with corn puree and jalapenos from Ohio City Provisions


And wash it all down with pisco sours from Vitamix


And sweeten it up with fall angel food trifle from Luna Bakery & Cafe


Then add in a great cause, helping students learn to appreciate, grow, and eat vegetables and fruits through Veggie U.


Now that’s a recipe for a perfect Saturday night!

***Disclosure: I was asked by Veggie U to help promote the Food & Wine Gala. In exchange, I received two complimentary tickets for myself and four tickets to give away. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
