Pittsburgh tasting event to showcase local milks

May 22, 2017 by  

Slow Food pittsburgh has organized a function that will showcase the variety of milks that are produced in the local area and give those who take part a chance to learn more about them and how they are used.

This tasting event will allow those who register to learn about how milk from different animals each has its own unique taste, and also how it can vary even among members of the same species. They will discover how the time of year and processing methods can affect the taste, and also the methods that local farmers use to produce milks form goats, sheep and cows.

In addition to the tasting, Millie Ice Cream’s Chad Townsend will be on hand to talk about why he chooses to use small scale, locally produced milks, and samples of the taste treats his company creates will be provided. Trevett Hooper will also stop by to escort the participants on a sneak peek tour of his newest dining location. Stationery printers can be called upon to produce recipe cards, menus and other informational resources that can be distributed to those who participate in an event such as this.

This event, which will bring consumers, farmers and restaurateurs together, has been planned for Legume Bistro, which can be found at 214 North Craig Street, on June 10. Tickets and additional details can be found on its events listing.
