Upcoming Event: Balsamic Farm Banquet

As usual, my apologies to my regular readers. I'm in the middle of creating a new dinner menu and have been busy planning a very exciting event. Some of you may remember our visit earlier this year to a New Mexico balsamic producer HERE. We've negotiated a behind-the-scenes visit to their farm and I'll be preparing a sumptuous balsamic-themed banquet. I hope you'll consider joining us on Saturday, October 2nd starting at 3 pm.

HERE is the link to their farm website.

And here is more information about the event:
Join hosts, Rob & Tyler Connoley, as they introduce you to one of our
local great food producers - Steve and Jane Darland of Monticello, who are producing truly world class balsamic vinegar. We believe their vinegar rivals even the 25- year old, $200 per bottle variety that we sell at the store. Its stunning in its maturity and flavor complexity.

Chef Rob will be creating numerous dishes throughout the day culminating in a multi-course balsamic-focused feast. The meal includes all wine pairings and other beverages. The Darlands will offer an exclusive behind-the-scene tour of their farm, the fermenting room and the aging attic - sure to be the highlight of your visit.

Transportation will be available for those wishing to come for just the day, and the Darlands have two guest cottages for those who wish to make it a weekend (minimum of two night stay please).

You are being invited because of your support of the Kumquat and your passion for great food. We believe this very unique opportunity is something you simply have to experience. Please join us for $95 per person. RSVP quickly and feel free to invite friends. Limited to 30 guests.
Call 534-0337 or stop by the store to register.
