Baltimore, MD: Foodie Dinner at Foraged

Baltimore skline with Hopkins Alumni banner

Sponsored by Johns Hopkins Alumni Association 

Join fellow alumni and friends for a JHU foodie experience! Foraged is a new take on farm-to-table where each item on the menu is comprised of local and seasonal ingredients. The concept is true to Chef Chris Amendola's ethos in the kitchen, one that is deeply rooted in the woods. This year, Chef Amendola was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award, for best mid-Atlantic chef. We'll begin the evening with shared starters for the table, including their sourdough focaccia. The 3-course dinner will be paired with drinks created using spirits (rum, bourbon and more) from local distillery, Covalent Spirits, owned by alums Jennifer Yang, A&S '07 and husband Andrew Cockley, Ed '17.
