On May 24, Wholesome Wave, a national non-profit dedicated to making healthy local food accessible to everyone, is celebrating its New England roots and love of local food with some of Connecticut’s most celebrated culinary artists at Clarke’s culinary showroom in South Norwalk at this year’s Whole Hog event!
The Whole Hog fundraising event will bring together Wholesome Wave’s co-founder and President, internationally renowned chef, author and owner of The Dressing Room Michel Nischan, along with fellow chefs Tim LaBant of the Schoolhouse at Cannondale restaurant in Wilton, John Barricelli of SoNo Baking Company in South Norwalk, Bun Lai of Miya’s Sushi in New Haven, and Joe Wolfson, the executive chef of the just-opened Terrain Garden Café at Terrain in Westport.
Working with nontraditional cuts of local free-range pork, each chef will surprise guests with their unique interpretations featuring locally grown ingredients. Tickets are $145 per person and proceeds benefit Wholesome Wave’s programs. Tickets can be purchased online at www.wholesomewave.org/getinvolved
