Love having an authentic butcher store at Bentonville Butcher & Deli, a place I can call up for oxtail, tongue, special cuts, housemade sausages and bacon....or just advice. Travis McConnell and team are doing great.Michael Kuefner adding to the Bentonville butcher scene at Brightwater NWA as well. R John Anderson...food reflects place. #foodiecall#theaterofcool
The Bentonville crew met Chef Boulud at the James Beard House in NYC when our talented chefs cooked the Best of Bentonville dinner. He was so nice, supportive and gracious. Invited the entire team to tour and taste his restaurants...even going so far as to comp our meals as part of his awesome hospitality. We, in turn, introduced him to the Arkansas Black Apple. A fair deal...and an experience I will always remember. His quote below does not surprise me. #foodiecall Case Dighero Matthew McClure Rob Nelson Tammy Goodridge Varney Sarah Carrell Nelson Blair Cockrum Cromwell Kalene Munson Griffith Scarlett Crafford Basore Scott Baker
Boom! #foodiecall fireworks.
The reason why we do what we do. Great narrative related to recent discussions. #theaterofcool economics
Main Street Siloam Springs is one of the organizational gems in the Northwest Arkansas downtown revitalization effort. Their work, led by Meredith Ghrist Bergstrom and a bevy of engaged and talented humans, has driven the concept of place as economic development in that town and it is paying off. Hats off to the entire team making things happen. If you haven't been lately, you are missing out on a unique regional experience. Greg Phillips #dnaofplace #theaterofcool
Seven different chefs came together with Downtown Bentonville, Inc. to produce a great event. The culinary scene up here is like family and this event is an example. Appreciative of where this scene started and where its going. #foodiecall
Boom II: Electric #foodiecall
Food and Place...how we value land is the baseline debate here. Do we continue to value sprawl and put our community economic solvancy at risk while diminishing the available agricultural land for our small, local farms? How does our local land use and development policy decisions impact our local food systems? How do we connect the incremental development movement to our local food system movement? Does our comprehensive community plans incorporate and advance our local food systems?
Amazing day at Salon with Karen Karp talking about the regional food system. Working on national model. Then Adam Danforth does brilliant fabrication of a side of beef in under 3 hours. What an incredible day! - Glenn Mack
Focus on strengthening the place you have, be intentional where you invest and what you build and celebrate the stories of your people. Outside capital will take notice. Thanks for keeping the message out there Charles Marohn!#dnaofplace
