Don’t miss this Grilling Social event!

BOSTON – It’s summer and grilling season, so three chefs are holding the annual Grilling Social event this month in partnership with Harpoon Brewery on Monday, July 24. They’re bringing back their Global Street Foods theme with a new twist – celebrating what Chef Andy Husbands of Tremont 647 and Smoke Shop calls “the glorious meat-on-a-stick cuisine.” The foods will include lamb skewers with salsa verde (Chef Susi), octopus Spiedini (Chef Maslow) and smoked prime brisket skewers and Texas-style baby back ribs (Chef Husbands).

Meanwhile, the Tremont 647 crew prepares their own menu of global street foods. The event takes place at Tremont 647 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $32 pp.


Farming module allows locally produced food year-round

Exsilo’s EkoFARMER, a Finnish company seeking “co-creation partners” who want to develop their own farming modules, calculates that the module, which doesn’t occupy much space, can go almost anywhere to produce approximately 55,000 pots of salad annually, nearly three times as much as produced in a greenhouse. The plants, on multiple floors, can be cultivated year-round and the light and humidity controlled perfectly, the company says. Go to www.exsilio.fi or www.ekofarmer.fi for more info.
