Featuring Special Guests and Local Favorites for Discussions & Demonstrations
Join us for a captivating gathering of food and conversation at Truro Center for the Arts' Edgewood Farm. Our second food symposium will bring together renowned chefs and food writers, as well as farmers and local food advocates to celebrate all things food and to consider our complex relationship with it. Participants will attend compelling panel discussions and will take part in a variety of lectures, workshops, and demonstrations led by the symposium’s featured presenters. Attendees will have ample opportunity to mingle over locally sourced lunches and a Saturday evening gathering. The symposium will culminate with an intimate dinner at Ceraldi in nearby Wellfleet, which will highlight local foods and farms over a set menu and wine pairings (limited seats available).
Meet Chef Barbara Lynch:
“My whole life I had to fight—to teach myself, to achieve, to prove what I could do.”
James Beard Award–winner and Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef Barbara Lynch is regarded as one of the world’s leading chefs and restaurateurs.
While growing up in South Boston, Barbara, at the age of 13, got her first kitchen job cooking at a local rectory. It was in high school, however, that an influential home economics teacher and a job working with Chef Mario Bonello at Boston’s esteemed St. Botolph Club piqued her interest in one day becoming a professional chef.
During her early twenties, Barbara worked under some of Boston’s greatest culinary talents. After working with Todd English for several years at both Michela’s and Olives, Barbara traveled to Italy where she learned about the country’s cuisine firsthand from local women. She returned to Boston and became the executive chef at Galleria Italiana, bringing national acclaim to the tiny trattoria when she captured Food & Wine's “Ten Best New Chefs in America” award.
