Patrick Martins and the Heritage Foods USA crew are embarking on a 40-day, cross-country road trip for a documentary production, media blitz, and public relations extravaganza. Many of their stops and activities are sponsored and hosted by local Slow food convivia.
The Los Angeles convivium is pleased that they will be stopping here for one day and honoring Chef Evan Kleiman at Neal Fraser’s new restaurant, BLD, on Tuesday, June 27, 2006. Heritage Foods will honor Evan with a lifetime achievement for her accomplishments in supporting healthy agriculture locally, nationally, and internationally.
The dinner will be the first meal at BLD and will be prepared jointly by Neal and Evan. The event is expected to start at 6:00pm, and food will be served family style.
More information, including the cost of the tickets (anticipated at between $100 and $125 per person, all inclusive) will be posted shortly.
Reservations are not yet being taken, but names and phone numbers of interested parties are being noted. The number of guests will be capped at somewhere between 100 and 140. To add your name to the list, please call BLD at 323.934.4400.
