"Farmer in the House"
Hello Fine Dining Friends,
I host a series of dinners every year at some of my favorite restaurants across the valley. These elegant evenings, known as "Farmer in the House", feature special one night menus, created by our most innovative chef/clients. Though not vegetarian, the menus showcase the exotic fruits and vegetables from my boutique sustainable farm. We align with a vineyard partner, or pair each course with wines thoughtfully selected by the chefs and the restaurant's sommelier.
We donate a portion of the evening's proceeds to the Association of Arizona Food Banks (see letter below from Zee Peters, Director of Development & Marketing), so that we might assist in feeding hungry, less fortunate Arizonans.
I hope you'll consider joining us at more than one event, as each location's menu is truly unique.
Very best wishes for a beautiful Arizona spring,
10th Annual "Farmer in the House" Dining Series
Spring 2016 Dining Schedule:
Join me and 10 of Arizona's most talented chefs, as we celebrate our 10th Annual Farmer in the House dining series. Each chef creates a unique, wine paired menu utilizing the freshest, most flavorful fruits and vegetables from my Laveen farm. The weekly dinners are held at restaurants throughout the valley, and as always, proceeds are donated to the Association of Arizona Food Banks. Menus, wine pairings and prices are posted on our website as they become available. Please make your reservations at each individual venue, and I look forward to seeing you this spring.
