Great thanks also to everyone who took the time and effort to complete the feedback surveys at the end of the event. Your comments are extremely valuable and will help us make our next event even better! We are already in the early planning stages of another event next spring, probably in May.
Based on your feedback, we hope to incorporate your excellent suggestions, such as these:
* Schedule the event for a Monday, when more chefs are available to attend.
* Have attendees introduce themselves to the group at the beginning.
* Have drinking water readily available.
* Distribute the agenda in advance.
As we go forward, we will seek to improve distribution of CT Seafood and other CT Grown products so that you can more easily obtain and utilize them.
Attached are photos (and recipes!) from the October 4th event, as well as the CT Seafood wholesale list that was distributed at the workshop. If you would like any individual photos in JPEG format, please call me at 860-713-2558 and I'll be happy to email them to you.
The CT Department of Agriculture has four new Veggie Mascots: Juicy Lucy Cucumber, Beta Carrot, Smiley Sprout, and The Colonel Corn. These costumes, as well as our cow costume (yet to be named), are available to borrow for special events and other agricultural-related promotions. For more information, please contact me at 860-713-2558.
