It's not often that you see food world heavyweights like Jonathan Gold, Naomi Duguid, and Molly O'Neill in the same place, but that's just what's happening a few weekends from now at the LongHouse Food Revival on September 7th and 8th at a dairy farm upstate in Rensselaerville. Like previous revivals, the weekend should be full of discussion, cooking demos, documentary films, and of course plenty of good eating. Tickets ($20 for Sunday food flea market, $100 for Saturday feast, $225 for the full weekend) are going fast, but we're giving away two spots to the whole weekend here.
The revival, founded by food writer Molly O'Neill, is all about expanding the scope and depth of food conversation with people who care about the how of a meal as much as the what. This program includes discussions led by authors like Jonathan Gold and Elissa Altman, live music, a pop up flea market of up and coming food businesses, and a "live fire" cookout with food from across the spice trail—Nigerian whole roasted goat and Indonesian gado gado, anyone?
This revival is all about exploring the cuisines of the old spice trading routes and their impact on American eating. To enter for two free tickets, leave a question in the comments you'd like to ask one of the speakers at the revival. You can also enter on Twitter by asking a question with the hashtag #LHFoodRevival. We'll select a winner at random on Monday at noon. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply; tickets do not include lodging or transportation.
