Just a quick reminder that the AOA-organized farm-to-table dinner at Creo is this Thursday. The five-course dinner will feature ingredients from local farms -- and the farmers will be there to give short talks about their farms and how the ingredients were grown.
It should be an interesting -- and delicious -- time. It starts at 6:30 pm.
Tickets for the five-course meal are $50, (drinks and tips not included). There's an optional wine pairing for $25. There are a handful of tickets remaining -- and you can buy them online.
The menu and the list of farms are after the jump.
The exact meal will depend on what is available at the farms this week, but here's the outline of what's being planned:
+ Poached farm egg, creamy polenta, Goats and Gourmets chevre, carrot puree, cracklins
+ Heirloom tomato, ricotta-mascarpone mousse, basil puree, fire-roasted heirloom tomato vinaigrette, Destination Euphoria Greenhouses micro arugula
+ Savory roasted butternut squash and cauliflower panna cotta, Maplebrook Farms burrata, Meadowbrook brown butter, toasted pumpkin seeds
