What is Graze: Birmingham?
It’s basically a huge picnic, except instead of bringing your food, you show up to sample the best of what 17 farmer-chef pairs have to offer.
Think farmers, chefs, friends and more. Find out who’s behind your food, and experience for yourself how good food tastes when it was harvested or processed within a couple of days. Fresh will take on a whole new meaning.
