Blazing Your Own Trail in Food: A Conversation with Women Who Know How


No Comments

Join Fresh Collective founders Maggie and Leigh Belanger as they moderate the discussion on women building careers and business in the food industry. Panel includes:

  • Cookbook author and New York Times contributor Colu Henry
  • James Beard Award-Winning chef and cookbook author Karen Akunowicz
  • America’s Test Kitchen cast member and food stylist Elle Simone Scott

Each ticket comes with a free drink from our cash bar–you can buy additional beer and wine, too. There will be plenty of time for mingling, sipping, and chatting both before and after the talk. We will also have Colu Henry’s and Karen Akunowicz’s cookbooks for sale so you can have them signed.

NEW UPDATE: In addition to a cash bar, several food makers–like Jaju Pierogies, Buenas, Macarie Macaroons, Willie’s Superbrew, and more–will set up a small makers market and sample their goods just for you.

See you there!

TIME: Monday October 1, 6:30-9:30 pm. The panel begins at 7pm sharp.

LOCATION: Alley Powered by Verizon, 10 Ware Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
