This past Sunday, my friend Jamie and I volunteered as chefs at Soil Born Farms for their monthly fundraising dinner, Sunday Supper.
We worked under the direction of Dominic Mogavero, the Kitchen & Demo Coordinator for Soil Born Farms, who created the AMAZING menu and organized much of the day. The menu consisted of herbed lentil and kale soup with rosemary, cheese crostini; marinated purple and green cabbage salad with a spicy citrus dressing, topped with matchstick watermelon Diakon radish; stuffed portabella mushrooms with almond scented quinoa, topped with a medallion of goat cheese and a dusting of Parmesan Reggiano; roasted winter vegetables with fennel; brined roasted chicken with a creamy green garlic and leek sauce and homemade carrot cake. All of this for $25!
This family style dinner was a great way to showcase the Farm’s fresh produce and the talent they employ. If you are interested in learning more about the Farm or would like to volunteer, please click here!
