The 6 course meal included: Nettle pesto, roasted plum & walnut pizza (shaved Asiago), melon smoked pepper gazpacho, BBQ smoked heritage chickens with roasted strawberry salsa, abundant summer bounty salad, heirloom tomatoes with purslane, Manzanita dressing & edible flowers, BBQ garlic ‘rattlesnake’ green beans, and for dessert, grilled stone fruits & honey with Treats lemon custard ice cream and Three Forks Cookie. Who doesn’t want Feast and Gather’s weekly meals after that menu?
Music was played by Halfpence and Haypenny and The Crux.Nevada City Film Festival has a gift of turning outdoor spaces into fun and exciting cinematic experiences. Once again they utilized the historic brick walls of Nevada City to screen a classic black and white silent film during the Farm to Table dinner.
The event is a beautiful way to showcase Nevada City, bringing people together to eat local food and experience small town ambiance. While Reinette and Shanan say this is the last year for organizing this dinner, I’m confident the local food movement will stay strong in our community, you can go out to eat, go to the Farmers Market, get a local CSA box, go to Polly’s Paladar Supper Club or participate in any of the local food events (Uncorked, Sierra Brewfest are happening soon).
