What's Cookin', July 8 

The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute hosts its third annual Bountiful Arkansas event Friday, July 16, and Saturday, July 17, on Petit Jean Mountain. The slate of activities includes horticulture workshops, culinary classes, keynote addresses by Chris Olsen of Botanica Gardens and Janet Carson, food-related films, tomato tastings and kids activities. Prices for individual events vary. Register online at uawri.org.

Toyota is sponsoring a farm to table event at the Little Rock Farmer's Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 17. The event, much like last week's Argenta Foodie Festival, pairs nine local chefs — Capi Peck (Capi's, Trio's), James Meadors (Fat Sam's), Tim Morton (1620), Mark Abernathy (Loca Luna, Red Door), Cynthia East (Pulaski Tech), Jacob Peck (Forty Two), Kathy Webb (Lilly's), Jason Knapp (Big Rock Bistro), Donnie Ferneau (Ferneau) — with local farmers. The dishes the chefs create will be available for complimentary tasting and Toyota will give away herbs. All is to promote the auto company's new line of hybrid cars, which will be on display.
