Join more than 25 chefs paired up with superstar farmers, ranchers and cheese makers on Sunday, October 6 at Swanson’s Nursery. The money raised benefits the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance’s Good Farmer Fund (which provides emergency relief for local farms) and community programs, including the food stamp bonus and food education.
Last year’s highlights: Charles Walpole from Blind Pig Bistro made a beautiful panzanella with a charred eggplant sauce on the side; Palace Kitchen’s Dezi Bonow dressed pretty greens in a buttermilk dressing and put some smoky pickled red onions on top; Steelhead Diner’s Anthony Polizzi made a pretty terrific pork terrine while Matt’s in the Market’s Chet Gerl created a fiery sausage. Seth Caswell made a dynamite pot pie from Alm Hill rabbit, Terra Plata’s big cheese, chef Murphy, reminded everyone of how much they loved big, fat mussels and Matt Lewis straddled the fine line between sweet and savory with a beignet wearing a crown of sage-infused butternut squash.
Doors open at 6pm with games and a silent auction. Their fundraising goal is set at a hefty amount of $40,000- get your tickets here to help them reach it!
October 6, 6p.m.- 9p.m.
