James Beard Award-winner Hank Shaw, a Sacramento food writer and chef, will prepare an intimate feast to benefit children's food literacy education on Aug. 31.
Ingredients for the five-course meal will be foraged from the backyard farm of Amber Stott, founder of the California Food Literacy Center. He'll pair courses with local wines and craft beers, and it will all take place in Stott's manicured yard in East Sacramento.
Shaw's blog, Hunter Angler Gardener Cook, won him the 2013 Best Food Blog award from the James Beard Award Foundation. It has also received honors twice with the International Association of Culinary Professionals. And he's been published in several venerable publications such as Food & Wine, Gastronomica and Organic Gardening.
