Dinner In the Barn Returns to Sierra Valley Farms

One of my favorite meals last year was the ~DINNER IN THE BARN~ event with Moody’s Bistro & Lounge and Sierra Valley Farms. Since many of you travel to Tahoe over the summer, or perhaps live near enough to attend this event, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this oh-so-memorable happening. (Just take a look at my pictures from last year and tell me it doesn’t look amazing.) Chef Mark Estee of Moody’s and chef de cuisine Guy Frenette will prepare a four-course feast using produce so fresh it grew in the field hours before they serve it, and dinner is served in a barn that dates back to 1936. Gary Romano, whose family has owned the organic Sierra Valley Farms (near Sierraville) for 100 years, will host the dinners July 24th-25th, August 28th-29th, and September 4th-5th.

The meal, which can also be adapted to accommodate vegetarian diners, will be paired accordingly with red and white wines. There will also be live music. Prior to the event, guests can tour the farm at 5pm; dinner is served at 6pm. $125 per person, which includes the four-course dinner, wine, beverages, farm tour, tax, and tip. Kids are welcome, but will be charged the adult price. Limited to 60 people, and it’s expected to sell out. Truckee Tahoe Transportation will offer guests rides to and from the barn dinners. Call Moody’s at 530-587-8688 to buy tickets.
