The center is particularly busy during the upcoming Nantucket Grown Food Festival, October 11-14, 2018. The festival, organized by Sustainable Nantucket, is a celebration of locally produced food, with dinners, workshops, cocktail events, tastings, and farm tours. At the Culinary Center, Nantucket cooking classes are being offered in conjunction with the festival, focusing on local food. The kick-off event, the Nantucket Grown dinner, is a four-course meal prepared from island-grown ingredients, with Chef Greg sharing stories of what's great and not-so-good about sourcing local food on a small island. The evening should prove to be a great peek into what makes Nantucket's local food scene so special. Be sure to check out the Nantucket Culinary Center for great Nantucket cooking classes all year long!
