One Book Sacramento a Shishito Pepper Success!

From chefs and farmers to librarians and business leaders, the room was filled with people committed to changing our local food system and creating a healthier community for our kids. The enthusiasm for this work was palpable by the joyful energy.

What People Are Saying 

“Hearing Dan Barber was great, but I especially liked how our local restaurants were coalesced around his Third Plate food notions. The chefs really came through and seemed really invested in what they had prepared and were serving.”
“Wow, what a great production!”
“You guys are truly impressive — I thought for sure you must have had an event planner. Everything just seemed so smooth and professional looking.  AWESOME!!”

Amaranth applause to our partners!
