Farm to Table Dinner with Artist Talk

Apr 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$65.00

Avery Williamson is a Philadelphia-based artist who explores the history of black Americans, specifically women, in personal and institutional archives. She examines how gaps in visual, oral and written documentation can inform the storytelling process. Avery graduated from Harvard College with a degree in Visual and Environmental Studies.

FARM TO TABLE DESCRIPTION & MENU:

Join us for a tasty evening at the local Hopewell Valley Vineyards as resident chef Nikiforos Vaimakis lovingly caters some of his favorite Greek-inspired dishes, sourcing local and fresh ingredients –  many from Blue Moon Acres in Hopewell – and drawing inspiration from both his native country of Greece as well as the farm-to-table movement of the States.

With every new dish a different wine will be served and presented, that best complements the flavors and palate. This dinner is an opportunity to appreciate local foods, artisan local wines, and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Meals are healthy, without filler ingredients or heavy cooking oils. Everything from scratch! Menu can be tailored for those with vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free diets. (Please communicate directly with the chef if this is the case.)

Eating together we also strengthen local bonds and new friendships.
