Chef Bryant Terry, James Beard Leadership Award-winning chef and author is presenting in Montgomery at a free lunchtime lecture on September 30th at the Fairview Farmers Market as a part of the River Region Food Policy Council’s newest project called the Food Turn Up.
Mr. Terry is the current chef-in- residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco, author of the critically acclaimed Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy and Creative African-American Cuisine which was named one of the best vegan/vegetarian cookbooks of the last 25 years by Cooking Light Magazine. His newest book, Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed is a celebration of music, culture and food that is both plant-based and nourishing to the soul.
The River Region Food Policy Council (RRFPC) is an up and coming grassroots organization based in Montgomery that serves the River Region by working towards a food system that we can all SHARE: meaning that the food system is Sustainable, Healthy, Affordable, Responsible, and Equitably available. Their current work is around conducting a community food assessment called the Food Turn Up and by educating the public on what creating a community based food system would mean for the River Region’s economy, health and future development.
