This Peeler Farms pasture hen struts her stuff for the camera.[/caption] I know what you are thinking ... really, another event? The answer my friends is yes. The time has arrived for the second dinner in our Premier Farm Dinner Series.
I will be the first to admit that this spring has been busy, with tasty Slow Food events joining the usual springtime San Antonio festivals. But if you really think about it, having a plethora of high-caliber chefs creating meals out of quality local produce is a nice problem to have. I don't know about you but I am more than happy to join new friends and old, over a table full of delicious food and drinks, while I enjoy that last few weeks of spring.
The second dinner in our series will be on June 3, and is being hosted by Slow Food South Texas and Peeler Farms. The dinner will feature the best aspects of various dining traditions; an elegant white table-cloth meal served family style at long tables surrounded by pastoral vistas. Chef John Brand, of Las Canarias, is sure to wow with a minimum of 5 courses featuring Marianna Peeler's pasture raised poultry and eggs. The meal will include wine paired with the courses to highlight each dish.
Tickets are on sale now at Slow Food South Texas. VIP tickets include round-trip transportation on a limo-van from San Antonio to the farm in Floresville, along with Champagne and goodies.
For those of you who attended our first farm dinner you already know how great these events are. For those of you who have yet to experience one, if the prospect of great food, great wine, great music and great company pique your interest, than this dinner is for you. Seating is very limited so don't wait to purchase your tickets.
You can read more about Peeler Farms poultry raising practices in my post FINDING BALANCE. For those of you diehards asking yourself what happened to the blogging about the farms? I promise this summer we will be back on track, featuring local farmers and their stories about raising the best food in South Texas. But for right now I am busy blogging about EATING the best food in South Texas.
