Chateau Thomas Farm to Table Dinner

A fabulous dinner was enjoyed Thursday night at Chateau Thomas Winery. The Garde manger class from Ivy Tech Community College prepared an amazing hors d'oeuvres buffet in the barrel room. Followed by a 5 course dinner with wine pairings in the Vineyard Room. The most wonderful thing is that the only items not from Indiana were salt, pepper and coffee. Several of the producers were on hand to enjoy the dinner at to talk with everyone about there farms. Pictures.

Don't miss other upcoming Farm to table dinners:

To help Slow Food Indy's Terra Madre delegates with the cost of travel to Italy, SFI is grateful to partner with Hoosier restaurants and producers for a series of Farm to Table dinners this summer. By raising enough money for 14 round-trip tickets to Italy, these Indiana producers, chefs, and educators will have the chance to learn about sustainable food practices with others from across the globe. They'll return to the Hoosier state with the experiences and ideas to make Indiana's local food culture stronger and better. Hope to see you at the table!
