All Over Albany / Creo farm to table dinner
Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
Autumn is a great time of year to visit local farms and bring home an amazing harvest of meats, cheeses and late season veggies.
So AOA and Creo are planning to gather some of that harvest for a 5-course farm-to-table dinner on Thursday, October 18. Chef Brian Bowden will create a menu using products from farms around the Capital Region -- and farmers will be at the dinner to discuss the planning and hard work that goes into creating the ingredients in each dish. The whole night should be fun, interesting, and delicious.
You'll also have an opportunity to pair the dishes with a handful of New York State wines.
The exact meal will depend on what is available at the farms closer to the date, but here's a rough idea 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
+ White Clover Farm "Sous Vide" beef, roasted garlic-sage "chimichurri", roasted corn pudding, braised chard empanada
+ Pan-roasted apple gelee, puff pastry, brown sugar powder, apple chip
Farms represented at the dinner will include:
Destination Euphoria Greenhouses
Purple Gunder Farm
Wild Thyme Farm
White Clover Farms
Goats and Gourmets
There's also an optional wine pairing. The wine list includes:
+ Riesling, dry, Dr. Konstantin Frank (Finger Lakes, NY)
+ Pinot Blanc, Lieb Cellars Reserve (North Fork, NY) Merlot, Charles Krug (Napa, CA)
+ Pinot Noir, Millbrook (Hudson, NY)
+ Ravines Cellars, Cab Franc (Fingerlakes, NY)

The cost for the dinner and talks by the farmers is $50. The wine pairing is optional, and an extra $25.
