I got an email about this dinner event designed to celebrate the local fall and winter harvest, and is also a fundraiser for the film ~IN SEARCH OF GOOD FOOD~, a movie about the food system in California. Here’s more: “This documentary series in the making explores the emerging ‘sustainable’ food system in California by traveling the state, interviewing those who are working hardest to bring ecologically friendly, socially just, and straight-up tasty food to your plate.”
Entertainment includes a trailer to the film, and the music of Divas de Los Muertos and Hannah the Raven.
Here’s the gorg multi-course menu from chef Leif Hedendal:
Saltbush, young golden beet, Blossom Bluff Orchards Fuyu, pomegranate, cave-aged Marisa, filberts, Pedro Ximenez
Soup of Dirty Girl cannellini shelling beans, Carola potato, golden turnip, celeriac, and baby mustard
Tahini/porcini cauliflower, rapini, and rainbow chard with chanterelles and wild rice; Brussels sprouts with Knoll horseradish
Roasted delicata, shallot/apple/yam puree, chestnut-seed brittle
Maple/buckwheat gingerbread-spiced quince, quince/bourbon reduction, cranberry crème fraîche, candied pecans
