If you're into food - talking about it, buying it, cooking it, eating it at home or in restaurants - join our live chat at noon on Wednesday, March 30. To participate, go to www.sacbee.com/live.
The chat will be your chance to ask food-related questions of Rick Mindermann, store director of the internationally regarded Corti Bros. Market on Folsom Boulevard; and John Paul Khoury, corporate chef for the purveyor Preferred Meats, a Bay Area company dedicated to small-farm operations. It supplies fare to many of Sacramento's premiere restaurants, including the Kitchen and Mulvaney's B&L, as well as to the Michelin star-winning Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena.
Mindermann and Khoury are two of six panelists who will appear at "Table Talk: The regions's food community comes together for an evening of lively discussion." That free event will be held at 6 p.m. April 13 at The Bee, 2100 Q St., Sacramento.
Join the conversation as two panels of leading local chefs, restaurateurs, food-industry experts and food writers share their thoughts on food trends, Sacramento's dining habits and the state of food blogging and traditional food writing. Light snacks will be provided by Source Global Tapas.
Participants must register for "Table Talk," which will be limited to 160 guests. Go to www.sacbee.com/tabletalk.
