In the spirit of community, this year Bonaroovians will be encouraged to break bread with one another. Bonnaroo will host its 2nd annual BonnaROOTS community dinner, a locally sourced, four-course meal, on June 11, 12 and 13 at 6:00 p.m.
The 110-capacity table will give festival-goers a chance to meet new people and get a taste of the locally sourced cuisine. Last year, guests included Bonnaroo co-founders, Bonnaroo producers, artists and activists. As an added bonus, Eat for Equity will also be sharing the menu in a free cookbook form after the dinners.
All proceeds from the dinners will go directly to BonnaROOTS partners Oxfam America and Eat for Equity. Oxfam America saves lives, develops long-term solutions to poverty, and campaigns for social change; Eat for Equity builds a culture of generosity through community meals that benefit various nonprofit organizations.
Inspired by Southern heritage cooking, a preview of the BonnaROOTS menu includes:
“Make your own soda bar” with Victory Garden Herbs
Local cheeses and grilled bread with strawberry pepper jam
Greens with Benton’s Aged Country Ham, Pickled Eggs, and Herb Buttermilk Dressing
Purple cape beans with fresh herbs
Lemon Buttermilk Panna Cotta with fresh berries
