On Tuesday, November 17th, Global Growers is hosting our 4th annual cocktail party fundraiser A Toast to the Culture in Agriculture at Makan restaurant from 6pm-8pm in Decatur, GA. Each year, this party celebrates the many cultures that make up our uniquely local agriculture – the food, the farmers, the chefs, along with their diverse stories and incredible palette of flavors.
For this year’s event, Global Growers farmers are partnering with the culinary team at Makan to highlight South Asian food cultures with a traditional Asian Pig Roast. The Makan team will be joined by Chefs Thomas McKeown, Savannah Haseler, Jessica Hanners, Germaine Appel, along with Global Growers farmers to highlight the heritage and cuisine from countries such as Burma, China, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, and, of course, the American South. The event will feature bountiful food tastings, signature cocktails, a photo exhibit, and a special surprise. Proceeds from the event will be support Global Growers’ work to connect new American families to land, education, and markets in the Atlanta area.
