Big River Slow Food Dinner on Sunday September 23
A good solid rainy day said to me it is a good day to get out the word early! We are having our 3rd annual Big River Slow Food Dinner on Sunday September 23 from about 2 pm until the later evening. This is absolutely great fun, with the best chefs you could ever ask for, doing their creative art on a beautiful organic farm, served fresh and hot, on the spot, with the chef giving you a personal introduction about what she or he has prepared. If you love food and a real dining experience, you should join us. Please join us! This is a fundraiser for Minnesota Food Association, to support our immigrant farmer training program, and for Slow Food MN, our chapter of a world-wide organization with the goal to create a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.
So, this is a white-tablecloth, full-service dinner with wine pairings. The menu combines produce from the immigrant farmers-in-training at the Minnesota Food Association’s Big River Farms Program with some of the favorite dishes of our guest chefs. Here we go … where are you going to find a line-up of chefs like this in one setting, in one place, cooking for you on the spot? Lucia Watson of Lucia’s; Nick Rancone and Thomas Boemer of Corner Table; Joe Hatch-Surisook of Sen Yai Sen Lek; and John Kraus of Patisserie 46.
