This morning at the market, board member and Harvest Dinner organizer Beth Kluvers handed me a piece of paper that I've been waiting for with much anticipation for the past couple of weeks...the full menu for our annual gala event. And it does not disappoint. Read on and once you have grabbed a napkin to wipe the drool from your chin, hurry on over to our website and buy a ticket or a table. Seats are limited to 100 people. And once word gets out about the menu with the 5 courses and the 5 biodynamic wines, there are no guarantees that they won't fly out the door.
And if you are vegan or vegetarian, don't worry. We have definitely not forgotten you. Piper of Kitchen Dances will be preparing vegan entrees that will match and maybe even exceed those of your carnivorous tablemates. And word has it that Pastry Girl will be preparing vegan and possibly even gluten free desserts as well. Once we have details on those offerings, as well as the specific wine pairings, we will make those available here in the blog and in our weekly e-newsletter.
How's this for a little build up of anticipation?
