Full plate

It's going to be a great week coming up if you're into local, seasonal, and adventurous eating. I'm going to share a few events in separate posts.

Terrapin Restaurant in Rhinebeck is presenting Farm to Table: A Spring Slow Food Dinner featuring local seasonal foods, on Friday, May 4th at 6:30 p.m. I'll be there! :-) The menu includes:

Sky Farm Asian greens with roasted baby beets and fiddleheads, wasabi vinaigrette

Asparagus, ramp and morel soup

Crispy roasted half chicken with Millbrook Vineyards Tocai beurre blanc, spring peas and fingerling potatoes
Highland Farm venison medallions with a Clinton Vineyards cassis demi-glace, braised greens and mashed potatoes
(vegetarian option available)

Red currant-goat cheese parfait

$49/person ($39 for Slow Food members) not inclusive of beverage, tax or gratuity. A portion of the proceeds from this dinner will be donated to Slow Food Hudson Valley (of which I am a volunteer co-leader.) The dinner may take place at Terrapin's new catering facility at the golf course in Staatsburg, depending on the size of the crowd. RSVP by calling the restaurant at 845-876-3330.
