Farm in the City celebrates farm to fork cuisine for the third year
Farm in the City returns this year with a few familiar faces and several exciting newcomers
It's that time of year again, friends. Farm in the City tickets are now on sale, and we recommend getting yours now while the getting's still good. Farm in the City is an annual event, now in its third year, that celebrates our unending love of local food culture while raising money for the Youth Farm & Market Project, an organization dedicated to teaching youth about quality food from farm to fork. The event may not be until September, but if last year is any indicator, this thing will sell out quickly.
The event features a laundry list of the Twin Cities' top culinary talent working together with local farms to prepare a six-course fall-harvest feast complete with various beer and cocktail pairings all for $55. The event also features a meet-and-greet with a variety of local farmers, and in an effort to keep things fresh, this year they'll be adding a live auction to the mix.
This year, several familiar faces from previous years' events will return, including event host Jorge Guzman of Solera, Tilia chef/owner Steven Brown, Butcher & the Boar's Jack Riebel, and Wyatt Evens from St. Paul's W.A. Frost.
As far as fresh new faces, you'll find Sea Change's Jamie Malone, Cafe Levain's Adam Vickerman, Don Saunders of the Kenwood, and Marshall Paulson of the Birchwood Cafe. Kristin Tyborski and Derik Moran of the Dakota Jazz Club and Christopher Gerster from the Red Stagg Supper Club are also on the roster.
Of course a six-course meal wouldn't be, well, a six-course meal, without dessert. That will be put together by Solera's Kim Pangburn and the Dakota's Katie Elsing.
The event will be held on September 15 with the meet-and-greet kicking off at 4 p.m. The meet-and-greet is both free and open to the public, but dinner is strictly for ticket holders. For tickets or more information visit the Farm in the City site.
