Farm Bureau to host inaugural dinner

Nestled among the pines in the foothills of Nevada County, a new food movement is slowly and steadily becoming the norm. Oftentimes referred to as Farm to Table, or Farm to Fork, this movement emphasizes slow food, prepared by local chefs, featuring produce, meats and grains grown locally and brought straight from the farm where they are raised to the table where they are featured as the stars of multi-course meals.

On Saturday, the Nevada County Farm Bureau presents a Farm to Table Dinner with the menu and multi-course meal prepared by local chef Carlos Trujillo of Farm to Table Catering.

Trujillo will put together a meal featuring vegetables raised by Bakbraken Acres, lamb cared for by Sierra Sky Ranch, pork raised by Hog Hollow Farms, fruit grown by Bierwagen’s Donner Trail Fruit and wine and handcrafted olive oil by Chacewater Winery. The meal will be set overlooking the orchards at North Ponderosa Vineyards, where the grapes for Chacewater Winery are grown.

Farm to Table Catering’s Trujillo is excited to offer an array of mouthwatering dishes for the meal, including an assortment of bruschetta and freshly made sausages to start with, followed by grilled rosemary and mint-scented lamb chops with salsa verdi and shaved pork loin with apple and black current soffritto as entrees, finished with an apple crisp with honey gelato, featuring locally made honey.

A limited number of tickets for the Farm Bureau’s inaugural Farm to Table Dinner are still available through Karen Henderson at 530-263-4784. Tickets are $50 per person and sponsor tables are still available. Proceeds will support local agriculture education programs.
