A special event in Tribeca explored the importance of regenerative farming and its effect on our food.
Ahead of World Soil Day on Dec. 5, Former White House Chef and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy Sam Kass teamed up with the company Knorr, whose mission is to bring delicious and accessible foods to its customers, to host “The $500 Dinner” at Casa Carmen on Nov. 30. The night aimed to show that what’s on our plates now will be a delicacy in just a few decades if regenerative agriculture practices aren’t widely adopted.

The night featured a menu of Arroz del Mar, Knorr Spanish Rice with seafood and Arroz de la Tierra, Knorr Mexican Rice with truffles, plus various appetizers and churros for dessert….
