News and Events

On Tuesday, April 22, Lantern Table will host Fullsteam, Mother Earth and Dashi to celebrate North Carolina Beer Month with a party inspired by Japanese izakayas in our garden.

Chefs Andrea Reusing and Billy Cotter will collaborate with brewers Sean Lilly Wilson and Josh Brewer on a Spring cocktail party-style dinner that pairs a beer with each salty, spicy, crunchy bite.

The evening is $75 a person, excluding tax and gratuity, and 100% of sales will benefit Kitchen Patrol, Lantern’s non-profit work to improve children’s access to good food.

Eater: Watch Andrea Reusing's TED Talk on the Illusion of Abundance and the Invisibility of Farm Workers

Here's a thought-provoking TEDx Talk from Lantern's Andrea Reusing in which the Chapel Hill, NC chef urges the food world to "make a place for farm workers at the table." Reusing points out that we live in a world run amuck with "foodies," saying, "We have tote bags for our tote bags. Our compost piles have their own Tumblrs." But yet somehow still the food community often ignores "something that's much more fundamental to the way we live: the lives of the people who harvest the food that we eat." Eater
