Chef Bick Plans Farm to Table Feast for Fall Harvest at Holbrook Farm – 10/14 in Bethel, CT

28 Sep

When we met up with Alicia and Renato Ghio this past May at Holbrook Farm for a farm to table dinner, we knew we were in for something amazing.  Well, for one thing it was ON a farm, the beautiful Holbrook Farm.  It doesn’t get much more farm to table than that, does it?  But, we were also amazed at how fresh, how flavorful, and how well Executive Chef Michael Bick and co. from Some Things Fishy Catering put the meal together.  We enjoyed the refreshments, the appetizers that were passed around, and all the courses that were set before us.  As always, it was great to hang with Alicia and Renato, but it was also cool to talk with the people around us…and find out that we were sitting right next to Fairfield County Foodie!

Well, Chef Bick is back for some more at Holbrook Farm in Bethel.  He’s planned a farm to table dinner on October 14, starting at 4 pm, for $65.  It’s BYOB, so you best believe we’re breaking out the Dom…or Bud Light.  Heresy!  You’ll notice after looking at the menu that the menu focuses in on what’s just been harvested and what’s in season.  Huh, is that what they mean by farm to table? :P  Take a look at this menu and you’ll be pining over the dishes and will be having dreams about them.  If you live south of Bethel, you’ll enjoy one of the most beautiful drives…especially during fall time.  Make your reservations online now, e-mail Chef Bick, or call him at (203) 722-2444.  These tickets are hot and will go faster than Honey Boo Boo Child’s 15 minutes of fame.
