About the Meal

Join us on October 13th for a multi-course dinner exploring the richness and bounty of the Montgomery County Agriculture Reserve. Built around stories and recipes from the forthcoming book, Bread & Beauty, this meal profiles farmers, makers and other producers on the reserve. With a menu designed by Ben Ritter of Watershed Cafe, this 4-course meal will highlight several of the fall recipes from the cookbook. The meal will be complimented with local wine and spirits also produced on the reserve.

Going beyond just food, this meal will also highlight the wide range of other makers on the reserve. Sustainable apparel brand Lady Farmer will add to the evening by curating a pre-meal demonstration of textile arts and other artists. Hear from makers as they discuss their work in hand spinning, candle making, felting, and more, and how their craft connects to the land and nature of the reserve.

NOTE: Gluten-free or vegetarian options are also available for this meal, please just indicate this on your order during checkout.
