We begin the first of our monthly 100-mile “foodshed,” dinners. Choosing to consume food that is produced within 100 miles of your home comes with all of the benefits of local, seasonal eating: more flavorful foods, smaller environmental footprint, better health, and support for local farmers. The concept of the 100-mile dinner forces a mental shift from eating globally. It forces you to think more locally in order to ensure everything you eat is within a 100 mile radius of your table.

Through research we explore what’s actually grown close to our home and begin to appreciate not only the bounty of our local region, but the major implications of eating foods from around the world.

Join Chef Marc Vetri, Beverage Director and Sommelier Steve Wildy as we celebrate monthly the bounty of the Greater Philadelphia’s regional food system…which is more than 70 counties in five states (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania), with a special emphasis on the Pennsylvania Dutch country and some of the richest, most productive, non-irrigated agricultural soils in the world!

Barbara Lynch Book Dinner

Monday, April 24, 2017  |  6:30PM
$200  |  Limited to 18 guests

Celebrated chef Barbara Lynch credits the defiant spirit of her upbringing in tough, poor “Southie,” a neighborhood ruled by the notorious Whitey Bulger gang, with helping her bluff her way into her first professional cooking jobs; develop a distinct culinary style through instinct and sheer moxie; then dare to found an empire of restaurants ranging from a casual but elegant “clam shack” to Boston’s epitome of modern haute cuisine. She has won multiple James Beard awards, including Outstanding Restaurateur (only the second woman to win), an Amelia Earhart award winner for her success as a woman in a male-dominated field, and the Relais & Chateau designation of Grand Chef (one of only six in North America). She is the owner of Barbara Lynch Gruppo, which encompasses seven celebrated restaurants, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, Drink, Sportello, and Menton. Three of her restaurants are anchored in and have spurred the revitalization of South Boston, her lifelong home. We are thrilled to have Barbara at Vetri Cucina and hope you can join us for this memorable event!
