Phillip Foss: bringing technology and food together since...last year.
Apparently, April is the month of technological firsts: the first bar with alcoholic atmosphere, Oprah's first Tweet, and, coming on Tuesday, the first digital tasting at Lockwood restaurant at the Palmer House Hilton.
Chef Phillip Foss, whose blog is a favorite among local foodies, will connect with Ohio farmer Lee Jones over Internet video during the dinner. The two will discuss sustainable agriculture and farming techniques and explain how the produce used in the meal made its way onto the plate. The menu includes butter-poached black cod, bacon-wrapped shad roe and a sampling of Dietzler Farm's beef, among other things.
The event, which runs from 6-9 p.m., costs $95 per person and benefits Veggie U., a non-profit that helps children make good nutritional choices. Call (312) 917-3404 to make a reservation.
