Once again, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) invites the community to gather on Saturday May 14th for their annual ~SPRING BREAKFAST~ fundraiser, where guests will enjoy market-fresh food and drink as well as the company of a farmer or food artisan at every table.

Facebook’s ‘culinary overlord’ Josef Desimone and executive chefs Tony Castellucci and Dean Spinks will create the morning’s repast using ingredients from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Start the day right with the Bloody Mary and virgin Bloody Mary bar, which will feature FAIR. vodka, a fair-trade certified spirit. Then feast on the menu of farm-fresh scrambled eggs with spinach, mushroom, chive; herb-roasted potatoes; pork-maple sausages; blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, whipped honey-pecan butter, whipped butter; fresh blackberries, strawberries, cherries, raspberries with crème fraîche, yogurt, and honey; bacon, spring onion, and fromage blanc quiche; market salad with micro herbs, chive blossoms, fresh peas, and blackberry vanilla or wholegrain mustard olive oil vinaigrette; assorted breakfast pastries; Philz coffee; and apple and orange juice.
