The strong interest of many chefs in sourcing local and sustainably produced ingredients has played a big role in the rapid growth of the Good Food movement. So it is only natural that culinary stars would also play a big role at FamilyFarmed‘s Good Food Festival, the big public celebration of the movement that on Saturday capped the three-day Good Food Festival & Conference.

Below are photos of Paul Fehribach of Chicago’s Big Jones restaurant conducting a cooking demo and receiving FamilyFarmed’s Good Food Chef of the Year award, and chefs Matthias Merges and Jason Hammel doing a demo of the Pilot Light program that incorporates food education into Chicago Public Schools curriculum.
