“CSA for the Holiday”
A Cooking Class
Wednesday, November 18th at 5:30pm
Looking for a way to utilize your CSA shares for the Thanksgiving season? We have just the thing! Please join us November 18th for a fun CSA cooking class with Chef Patrick Loughrey. Tuition: $5
A little bit about Chef Patrick: Originally from Cincinnati, OH, Iâ€™ve been a Florida resident for more than a decade. I started cooking while working through the restaurant industry in the early 2000â€™s and developed a taste for Asian fusion, Central & South American street food and home-style Americana. I make food with passion and youâ€™ll taste it in every bite. If I can change one personâ€™s mind on a specific food, I feel Iâ€™ve succeeded; tell me a food you despise and Iâ€™ll make you love it before the dayâ€™s done.
Dinner Bell Supper Club is a monthly supper limited to 20 guests in our beautiful barn. These monthly meals will highlight our local produce as well as dairy, meats and fruits produced in our amazing Florida region. Supper will be prepared by our farm manager, Christa Leonard and other guest chefs that will highlight our seasonal offerings.
We trade for local produce and are saving sliding scale seats at the table for farmers and work trade!
The supper table WELCOMES ALL
