Zola Wine & Kitchen Executive Chef and Partner Bryan Moscatello is one of the biggest supporters of the FreshFarm Markets and their farmers in the DC area. You may remember, I blogged about him kicking off the first Penn Quarter Farmer Market of 2010 where he made an amazing Spring Vegetable Chicken Salad (which in turn made me buy a mandolin.)
Now, instead of bringing the chef to the market, Moscatello is bringing the farmers to Zola Wine & Kitchen for a series of talks about market products. After each talk, Moscatello and the featured farmer will accompany everyone for an informal, but personal market tour!
