Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is hosting Beyond the Plate: A Symposium of Food, Writing, and Community, on June 8.

The event will feature Barbara Lynch as this year’s keynote speaker as well as former Gourmet Magazine editor John “Doc” Willoughby and food and travel writer Bill Sertl, as well as local favorites, including Ali Berlow, Michael Ceraldi, Nicole Cormier, Drew Locke, Peter Staaterman, Deborah Hopkins, Kim Shkapich, Liam Luttrell-Rowland, Amy and Molly Costa, Helen Grimm and Francie Randolf from Sustainable Cape, for a day of all things food.

The Symposium will open with a panel discussion on Our Local Food Choices, moderated by food activist Ali Berlow. The following session will feature keynote speaker Barbara Lynch. Ms. Lynch grew up in South Boston, and a job working with Chef Mario Bonello at Boston’s esteemed St. Botolph Club piqued her interest in one day becoming a professional chef.

In 1998, Ms. Lynch opened a restaurant of her own, No. 9 Park, in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. The restaurant immediately received rave reviews from publications around the country and was named one of the “Top 25 New Restaurants in America” by Bon Appétit and “Best New Restaurant” by Food & Wine.

For ticket information write The symposium lasts from 9 AM to 5 PM.
