10th Annual Good Food Festival Kicks Off Thursday

The Good Food Festival and Conference enters its tenth year beginning this Thursday and runs through Saturday. The three-day event covers the business of food, from farmers to chefs to non-profits to artisanal producers.

There will be celebrity chef demonstrations from Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill), Erling Wu-Bower (Nico Osteria) and more. The event's biggest exhibition (and the one you may have the hardest time getting in to) will be a butchering and home curing class taught by food writer Michael Ruhlman and chef Brian Polcyn, whose book Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing, which was re-released last year in a revised and updated version.

Friday night finds the Localicious party from 7:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. with Eataly, The Radler, Browntrout and more serving up local food, drinks and featuring live music.

Ticket prices vary depending on what day or event you wish to attend. You can purchase a three-day, all-access pass for $220 instead of picking and choosing, or just go to Localicious for $80, or attend Saturday for $10. To see all of your options and for more information, visit their website here.
