Photo Slideshow: Real Food Dinner, Tampa

Self-proclaimed "beyond organic" farmer Joel Salatin, shares his vision for the future of food in America as The Roosevelt 2.0 in Ybor City hosts a local farmer supported dinner in April.

All-star Tampa Chefs Ferrel Alvarez of Cafe Dufrain, Greg Baker of The Refinery and Byron Gabel of Grand Hyatt Resort create a farm-to-fork dinner using locally grown food, including goat cheese from The Dancing Goat in Tampa and vegetables from King Family Farms in Bradenton.

Salatin, whose Polyface Farm was featured in the book "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and in the documentaries "Food, Inc." and "Fresh," then takes to the stage to share his knowledge of sustainable farming with the sold-out crowd. He finishes the evening with a book signing of his latest work, "Folks, This Ain't Normal."
