Omnivores who support the Vermont Fresh Network probably won't have much of a dilemma about shelling out 10 bucks a pop for the nonprofit's raffle tickets, on sale through May 31. The prize is pretty special: a June 10 dinner for two at Penny Cluse Café with Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. PC Owner and Chef Charles Reeves and Chef Maura O'Sullivan will prepare the meal, to feature "seasonal farm-fresh fare," for the raffle winners and a few other special guests.
The money raised will support the VFN and UVM's Food Systems Leadership and Policy Institute, where ethical-eating guru Pollan will deliver a guest lecture the same evening.
Justin Turcotte: Gotta love our little food Mecca!
Roy: Meh. They can't compare to Red Hen and dealing with Hunt is often not worth the trouble.
Tammy Goughnour: This will be AWESOME!! Their pastry is out of this world!!
Old Vermonter: Amazing they lasted so long with such terrible business acumem
Bryan Bouchard: It wasn't that good before. Of they didn't reopen it wouldn't be a great loss to the Burlington…
