Yellowstone Valley Small Plates, Big Tastes to feature local food, chefs

Five area chefs are partnering with eight local farmers and ranchers to create an unforgettable local food experience at Yellowstone Valley Small Plates, Big Tastes at DanWalt Gardens in Billings on Sunday, Oct. 8, at 5:30 pm.
Montanans are invited to enjoy an evening at the gardens and experience a five-course dinner of small plates and drink pairings crafted by local chefs, including Jason Corbridge of Last Chance Pub and Cider Mill; Ben Harmon of The Fieldhouse; Eric Trager of Old Piney Dell; Nicholas Goldman of Wild Flower Kitchen, and others.
This event is a fundraiser for the Yellowstone Valley Food Hub, a marketing and distribution producers’ cooperative that will facilitate the movement of local food from farm to fork in the Yellowstone Valley and across the region, so that consumers, restaurants, and institutions make it their first choice. The project is being facilitated by Northern Plains Resource Council.
Dinner tickets are $100 per person; $85 per person without beer/wine; or $750 to sponsor a table for eight. Vegetarian options will be available, as well as a full cash bar. The event will feature a cocktail hour at 4:30 pm, with dinner served at 5:30 pm. Tickets are available at or by calling Northern Plains Resource Council at 248-1154.
