Featured Chef: Damien Brockway of Distant Relatives:

Tour de Farm is showcasing James Beard nominee Damien Brockway from Distant Relatives as the headlining chef of the event! Distant Relatives is “inspired by the textures, flavors, heritage and narrative of the African diaspora within the United States.” As a result, they “employ strong elements of Pecan and mixed hardwood smoke, heightened spice profiles, traditional preservation methods and a nose to tail, root to stem approach utilizing products from our local food system. Distant Relatives has and continues to be a project that supports the agricultural, artisan and underserved communities by continued partnerships with local artisans, farmers and likeminded organizations.”
