Wakeman Town Farm Holds First Farm to Table Event Featuring CT’s Best Chefs!

24 Jul

“Grassroots” is an event not to be missed.  It’s the kind of thing that if you miss it, you realize that you’re not one of the cool kids anymore.  It’s the kind of event that when you go, you realize how awesome food is and how wicked good it feels to keep it local.  Although the “Grassroots” farm to table dinner won’t be going on until September 15, we felt that we had to tell you about it now because tickets go on sale this Friday, August 3 and are $150 each.  Make sure that you’re following Wakeman Town Farm by e-mail newsletter if you’re a member…that’s where you’ll find the invitation.  It will also be up on their site with a link to purchase tickets via PayPal.

Here are some of the best chefs that CT has who are locavores, ready to transform local seasonal veggies (from nearby farms) into meals of yumminess:

Gnocchi from Artisan in Southport

Jason Sobocinski of Caseus, New Haven
John Naughright of LeFarm, Westport
Frederic Kieffer of Artisan, Southport
John Barricelli, SoNo Baking Company, Norwalk & Westport

The dinner will also help Wakeman Town Farm to raise money for their farm.  Their plans?  Spruce up the place, give away scholarships, create high school and college internships, and install animal shelters for their children’s program.  Another way to help Wakeman Town Farm is by becoming a member.  Here are some of the ways to help out along with the benefits:
