Local Flavors Dinner Series in CU

Timpone's Restaurant celebrates local flavors

Urbana, IL - The second installment of the Local Flavors dinner series in Champaign-Urbana.  The series, now celebrating its 10th season, highlights locally-owned restaurants with a commitment to sourcing from central Illinois farmers and gives central Illinois residents the opportunity to experience the true flavors of Illinois.

 
 
Local Flavors dinners take place on the third Thursday of each month, June - October, and rotate to a different restaurant each month. Chefs from participating restaurants are asked to create a “Local Flavors Special” featuring seasonal produce and proteins sourced directly from central Illinois farmers. While all of the participating restaurants source locally on some level, the “Local Flavors Special” gives chefs the opportunity to showcase an entirely local dish. Dates and locations for the 2017 Local Flavors season in Champaign-Urbana are as follows:
 
September 21st: Timpone’s Restaurant
October 19th:  Bacaro
 
Customers can stop by any participating restaurant on their scheduled date during their regular business hours to order the Local Flavors Special. Information about upcoming events and specials can be found at www.buyfreshbuylocalcentralillinois.org. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by contacting restaurants directly.
 
Illinois Stewardship Alliance is a statewide not-for-profit organization that cultivates a local food and farm system that is economically viable, environmentally sustainable, and socially just. To learn more visit www.ilstewards.org
