Dinner #7: Food [July 25]

Food: We all need it. Some of us have a complicated relationship with it. Some of us love it. Some of us love it so much that we’re considered a “foodie.” Well, get your cameras ready, cause this dinner will be one for Instagram. The master home brewer and self-taught chef, James Yarbrough will be pampering us with a 5-course, beer-paired dinner!

The discussion will focus on what food meant to our families, what food means to us now, and how we got there.
