Mecca Grade Estate Malt, which produces single-source malt for brewers, is hosting a farm to table dinner at the historical Luelling Homestead Barn in Madras. The dinner starts with a cocktail made from bourbon distilled with Mecca Grade Estate Malt, as well as hors d'oeuvres. Chef James Fink of Wild Oregon Foods will prepare a five-course dinner using ingredients from local family farms in Jefferson County and Central Oregon. Each course will be paired with a beer brewed with Mecca Grade Estate Malt. Highlights include bacon-wrapped meatloaf and grilled tri tip with a Spanish tortilla, romesco, sautéed chard and kale. Tickets are limited and for sale online.

Did you know that almost 26 percent of Deschutes County's Knott Landfill is made up of wasted food? "Wasted! The Story of Food Waste" is a movie aimed at changing the way we buy, cook, recycle and eat food, exposing the criminality of food waste and how it directly contributes to climate change. Chefs including Massimo Bottura, Anthony Bourdain and Dan Barber are featured to show us how they transform what are considered scraps into incredible dishes. The Rethink Waste Project and the High Desert Food & Farm Alliance are partnering to bring the film for one night only at the Volcanic Theatre Pub. The evening includes a short panel discussion and Q&A session featuring food industry experts working to combat food waste locally.
