The Garden Education Center of Greenwich is hosting a series of Conscious Living Dinners with Dr. Johnathan Roberti aimed at helping guests become informed about eating a plant-based, whole foods diet and leave empowered to make changes in their diets. The series runs on three evenings in September, October, and November.
The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library will welcome Christy Colasurdo, co-author of The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook, and Analiese Paik, founder and editor of Fairfield Green Food Guide, as the guest speakers at its Annual Meeting of the general membership on Thursday, September 3rd. The meeting will take place at 7:00 pm in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Light refreshments will be served.
It’s August already and time to think about how you want to spend your last weeks of summer. Have you gotten through your summer bucket list? If you don’t have one, or have already completed it, here are five things to do before the summer ends that will maximize your enjoyment of the local harvest and beautiful weather. This is the time of year when farms are bursting with corn, tomatoes, eggplant, summer squash, beans, cucumbers, peppers and more.
Farm dinners remain so popular that the summer 2015 season is seeing a reprise of many of last year’s events. Whether you’re planning a night out with your significant other, a friend, or a large group, reserve your seat right away because tickets go fast. The Millstone Farm “Farm to Fork” Series is already sold out and just a handful of tickets remain for Outstanding in the Field dinners at The Hickories and Waldingfield Farm.
Thursday, Jul 9, 2015 from 10:00 AM – 10:45 PM, The Rewards of Buying Locally Grown Food Talk with Christy Colasurdo, co-author of The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook, and Analiese Paik, founder and editor of the Fairfield Green Food Guide. The McManus Room at the Westport Library, 20 Jesup Road, Westport, CT 06880 | 203.291.4800
10:45-11:45: Walking tour of the Westport Farmers’ Market and Book Signing with Chefs and Farmers
It’s easy to fall into a veggie rut, making the same ten recipes over and over again. I’m guilty of defaulting to a quick saute in garlic and olive oil myself. Inspiration awaits at the weekly chef demos at the Westport Farmers’ market where top local chefs demonstrate how they use produce from market vendors to create a fantastic appetizer, salad, soup or side dish.
Now in its ninth year, Dinners at the Farm announces the return of its open-air, fundraiser dinners at White Gate Farm in East Lyme and Barberry Hill Farm in Madison. Guests will savor six course feasts prepared with organically grown vegetables that’s absolutely fresh and seasonal at the moment––and all cooked and served outside right alongside the fields from which it came.
