CSA Week #7 is here! The list is looking great again this week! More and more variety is being added each week.

CSA Week #7

We're also excited that our next Field to Fork Dinner with MacGregor Mann of Junto is right around the corner! MacGregor has joined us before for our Field to Fork series and everyone had an amazing time. Of course we're excited to have him with us again!

MacGregor and HG at last years Field to Fork dinner

MacGregor Mann has been a chef since 2000. He started his career at Penne at the Inn at Penn, moved on to Washington Square and then started at Amada under Chef Jose Garces in 2005. Wanting a change he moved to Chicago in 2008 to work at Mercat. He came back to Philadelphia to work at Amada again in 2009, becoming head chef this time around! Wanting to add to his culinary experiences he move to Denmark for 4 months in 2012 to work at Noma. Following his trip to Noma, he landed at Henry’s Fork Lodge in Idaho but returned to his roots during the winter of 2013. At this time he began working on the process of creating Junto which opened in May of 2014.

Our mouths are still watering from this Lima Bean Succotash MacGregor created for one of the dinners last year!

We can't wait to see what menu MacGregor is creating for the dinner on August 3rd! HG has some delicious veggies that are being harvested for MacGregor to choose from!

An evening with Cocina Lolo

We had our first Field to Fork Dinner of the 2016 season on July 13th with Bryan Sikora of Cocina Lolo. It was an amazing night! We had some rain but it cleared up and provided the perfect backdrop for the evening.

The menu included corn and tomatoes grown at SIW

The dinner was served family style so everyone socialized and mingled in the barn. 

The lighting and flowers set the perfect ambiance in the barn for the night
Bryan and the team prepared a delicious meal starting with fresh salsa & guacamole along side swordfish escabeche. This was followed by grilled skirt steak and chicken, a divine pasole with vegetable jasmine rice. The grill was going and the food was flowing!

Grilled corn getting ready to head to the tables for guests to enjoy.  This was the first taste of the season for HG's sweet corn and it was delicious!

Bryan slicing up the grilled steak for tacos! The meal was amazing and showcased the farms delicious veggies perfectly. We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Bryan and his team for making the evening such a delight. We also want to thank everyone who attended and make our Field to Fork series a success!

We can't wait for the next dinner!
