Farm to Table Dinner Update

Many thanks to all the folks who helped fill and clean the plates at R Bistro's two Farm to Table dinners last week. Proceeds from the dinners will help pay for the travel expenses of Slow Food Indy's delegates to Terra Madre in Torino, Italy, this fall. Chef Regina Mehallic of R Bistro is among Slow Food Indy's delegates headed to Terra Madre, and we're grateful for the generous support of Chef Mehallic, her staff, and all the patrons who feasted for the cause. (Local treats on the menu included a whole roasted goat!)

More Farm to Table Dinners are in the works!

On September 1, Chef Neal Brown will be doing a Farm to Table Dinner at L'Exploreteur in conjunction with Eat Local Week. Contact L'explorateur for more info and to make reservations.

On September 14, several local chefs will each prepare one course for this dinner at the Apple Family Farm in McCordsville, Indiana. Chefs include Regina Mehallick, Greg Hardesty, Chris Eley, Aaron Butts, and Thom England. Farm tour to start at 4pm and dinner at 5pm. Reservations are required.

Joseph Decuis will host a Farm to Fork OktoberFest Harvest Dinner at Heritage Farm in October that features the glories of the fall including a hay ride, bonfire, live music and delicious food, wine and beer. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Slow Food Indy's fund to help pay the travel expenses of central Indiana delegates headed to Terra Madre, including Joseph Decuis chef Aaron Butts. Contact the restaurant for date, time, price, and more details.
