Michael Pollan Savors Some Local Goodness

I hear it was a who's who of local chefs and food lovers who got, well, down to local business the other night at Petit Chou. The occasion? Author Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food) was in town for his lecture at Butler and Martha Hoover organized a group of local chefs -- including Nicole and Eli Anderson of H2O Sushi and Neal Brown of L'explorateur -- to show Pollan that we're pretty committed to local resources. Dishes included Brown's elk tartar with orange, celery and a green olive and white chocolate emulsion, Eli Andersons' beet salad with pickled fennel, Hoover's chicken panini, and Nicole Anderson's incredible goat cheese ice cream.
