The first of many farm-to-table dinners was sold out and took place at the historic Pump House, overlooking the Monongahela River in Homestead. The historic building embodies the spirit of Pittsburgh: while it was the original Carnegie Steel Company’s Homestead Works, it now stands as a historic preservation site along The Great Allegheny Passage as part of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail – a 150-mile bike trail. The city of steel is now a technology hub with walking, hiking, and biking trails winding throughout the landscape. The smog in the air from the steel mill era has cleared and Pittsburgh now stands as a green city with an abundance of farms. It only seems natural to merge the farm-to-table movement with Pittsburgh’s historic past for the inaugural “Fighting Cancer with Food” dinner at this historic site. Support the Cancer Prevention Project along with the farm to table movement in Pittsburgh while enjoying a multiple course meal handpicked by the CPP’s physician leader, Dr. Colin Champ. Please see the schedule below for additional information on the event.
ARRIVAL + MEET-AND-GREET
5:00p – 5:30p: Meet the team at CPP who helped setup the event, explore the historic site, participate in the silent auction, and read about the health aspects of the hand-selected dinner foods. Chat with other Pittsburghers who are taking an active role in the local health movement.
5:30pm – 8:00pm: Enjoy a multiple course real/whole food cancer-fighting dinner with ingredients from many local Pittsburgh farms, hand selected by the Cancer Prevention Project crew and paired with exceptional wines. The cancer-fighting benefits of each food will be discussed at the event and information will be included in the gift bags.
Dinner will be prepared and served by Garnett Livingston of La Maison. All food will be prepared from ethically raised animals. Many ingredients are organic and all animal sources are from free-roaming (pastured) farm environments.
An interactive presentation on the health benefits of the handpicked wines served at dinner will be provided by Rob McCaughey of Palate Partners. Dr. Colin Champ will give a presentation on the health aspects of each course.
A silent auction will include items from several local Pittsburgh farms and businesses. With each ticket purchase, admission includes a signed copy of Dr. Champ’s book Misguided Medicine along with a tote bag full of informational material, recipes, and other goodies.
