Picture this: On a beautiful late summer evening, ninety people gather out in the gardens of Hawkins Family Farm. They sit between heaven and earth at tables dressed in white tablecloths. On their china plates they find food that was grown or raised not far from where they sit, exquisite dishes prepared by local chef Jennifer Disler, paired with locally-crafted beers from Mad Anthony Brewing Company and locally-roasted coffee from Cerulean.
What will it be this year? The rumor is that that his year's menu may include exotic pintade de numidie, rabbit pasta verde, rich vegetable strata, warm brick-oven sourdough bread, and mini-pies with local blueberry and maple cream.
In past years we have enjoyed slow-cooked beef rib roast, brick-oven roasted suckling pig, roast Poulet Rouge confit, beef braciole stuffed with zucchini, chard, and bell peppers with tomato sauce, raw-milk cheese and mushrooms on brick-oven flatbread, rainbow carrots, sautéed fresh greens with pork belly, late-season fresh red raspberry cobbler and much, much more. One thing is certain: nearly every ingredient will be fresh and locally-produced, tasting of the season, tasting of the place.
The diners sip a variety of local beers, a variety expertly paired with each course, including dessert. They linger until sunset, enjoying the slow food experience of a five-course meal.
This event typically sells out.
