MKEfoodies: Iron Horse Local Slow Food Social

Last night I attended my second MKEfoodies restauarant event, which was also hosted by Slow Food Wisconsin Southeast, at The Iron Horse Hotel.

It was my third time at The Iron Horse Hotel (first time was at The Yard, second time was on a Milwaukee Food tour), and I love the venue!  I wish I had a reason to stay there, as I've heard their rooms are fantastic.

MKEfoodies events are always fun, but they're even better when you spot familiar faces like Lisa and Molly.  We posed in front of the flag in the lobby that was made with 36 pair of Levi jeans.



The highlight of the evening was a chef talk with Scott Pampuch, who just recently came to the Iron Horse Hotel.  He's a huge proponent of farm to table, not to be confused with pharm to table, as he says. 

Chef Pampuch is passionate about food, and both he and Barb Heinen of Slow Food spoke about how important it is that we as consumers vote with our dollar when shopping. 



For more information on Chef Scott Pampuch, there's a great OnMilwaukee.com article, or you can watch Kyle Cherek's video below.
