What you missed.

Mouth watering tomato salad

Mouth watering tomato salad

On Tuesday, August 25th, we had one of our monthly “Know Your Farmer” dinners – featuring the lovely produce of Earthdance Farms.

That night we heard from Molly Rockamann (founder of Earthdance), as well as watched a short film on the history of the Mueller Farm (the land in which Earthdance is now located).

Then everyone enjoyed a four course meal:

-purple tomatillo soup, with or without chicken (from Earthdance: purple tomatillos and jalapenos)

-tomato salad with genovese basil and flowers (from ED: heirloom tomatoes, basil, nasturium, bachelor buttons, and borage)

omnivore: chicken milenese with wild argula pesto and veggie lasagne (from ED: wild argula, crocknecks, zucchini, basil)earth dance dinner 003

vegetarian: squash samosa and veggie biryani (from ED: crocknecks, zucchini, swiss chard, jalapenos, tomatoes)

-melon sorbet with strawberries and sweet cinnamon basil pesto (from ED: moon and stars melon, white wonder melon, strawberries, cinnamon basil)
