    Field Guide Festival

    Yes, Friday’s incredible feast at Rain Lily Farm is already sold out, which is why we're telling you in advance about Saturday (the 30th)’s celebration at Fiesta Gardens (beginning with a dawn’s-early-light Comedor Run Club journey, if you wish) that will bring a Revival Brunch prepared by Jon Oh (The Well), Christina Currier (Comedor), Jules Stoddart (Olamaie), Joe & Kasey Diffie (Joe’s Organics), Tara Chapman (Two Hives Honey), and Ben McConnell (Bouldin Food Forest) – and how it’ll be accompanied by juices, wine, and other drink pairings. And then, following those sumptuous Revival noms, you’ll continue your wandering way among the festive booths arrayed around Fiesta Gardens, grazing through many dishes, all presented as a collaboration between pairs of chef-and-farmer partners. Ah, this'll be a delightful daylong extravaganza of locavore eating and learning!
    Sat., Oct. 30. $125-300 (but the onsite Farmers Market is FREE to attend).

    Eberly's Creme Brûlée for Girls Empowerment Network

    Eberly is honoring the nonprofit Girls Empowerment Network by donating $1 to the organization with every creme brûlée sold. This is a good thing from the get-go, we believe, and who doesn't occasionally want a dessert like this? But, come to find out that pastry chef Sarah Seghi has created a Peach Leaf Creme Brûlée with Rum Soaked Pound Cake, Lemon Creme Fraiche, and Preserved Cherry Jam, and we're considering buying maybe a dozen of them every single day. Note: We're told that this Eberly/GEN partnership is ongoing, so we may be in trouble.

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.
