7â€“7:30pm Signing and mingling with authors and guests
Project 258 is the result of writer-photographer Peter Barrettâ€™s three years spent as artist-in-residence at Fish & Game, from the restaurantâ€™s inception, documenting James Beard Award-winning chef Zak Pelaccio and his teamâ€™s processes and chasing their outstanding ingredients up the supply chain to their local sources. It digs deeper into what â€œfarm to tableâ€ really means and, through its transparency, reinvigorates the overused term.
Designed by Sarah Rainwater Design, the casebound book is 348 pages, sized at 12 x 9 inches with 370 color photos, 27 illustrations and one map. It's worth a closer look. Limited copies on hand at the event for $45. The RISD Store will carry the book thereafter.
