Ridgefield Farmers’ Market
October Chef Series
Wednesdays, 3:00 – 5:00pm
If you have never been to the Ridgefield Farmers’ Market, this month would be a great time. The market is kicking it into high gear for the end of the growing season. In addition to fantastic produce, artisan cheese and fresh baked bread, they’ll be celebrating the harvest with a chef series featuring some of the area’s farm-to-table restaurants. The chefs will be presenting cooking demos and tastings as well as handing out recipes.
October 16th, Wirt Cook, Redding Roadhouse. With an impressive background that includes cooking alongside Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, Chef Cook has created an American Tavern in this charming New England destination that speaks to our modern day sustainable food culture.
October 23rd, Scott Ostrander, Mama’s Boy Southern Table and Refuge. Low Country cuisine is at the heart of this “Southern Table and Refuge” located in SoNo.
October 30th, Forrest Pasternack, Bailey’s Backyard. A local darling since opening in 1999, last year Owner Sal Bagliavio and new Executive Chef Forrest Pasternack revamped the New American menu, taking a farm-to-table approach.
