Kurt T and Dan Savage
Arts & Culture

Timmermeister, KurtWhen local restaurant legend Kurt Timmermeister bought his Vashon Island farm in 1991, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. He later sold Cafe Septieme to focus on the farm full-time–as chronicled in his popular book, Growing a Farmer. Now celebrating his love of local, delicious ingredients and the people who provide them, Timmermeister assembles locally-grown milk, onions, tomatoes and mushrooms into a single meal, the story behind Growing a Feast: The Chronicle of a Farm-to-Table Meal.

He’ll appear in conversation with Dan Savage, journalist, author and Editorial Director for The Stranger.

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series and the Town Green sub series, presented with The Peach Foundation and Elliott Bay Book Company. Sponsored by City Arts.
Tickets: $5
Doors open: 6:30 p.m.
