FarmStart Feast

M & J invited us to join them for a feast on the farm today. The event featured local harvest, prepared by some incredible chefs from around the city. Marben, C5, Torito, Perigee & Amuse-Bouche. It also featured some excellent Ontario wines, including an unoaked Chardonnay from Fielding Estate Winery

There were appetizers to start, and then a few hours of music, field tours, and milling around the field – all with drinks in hand.

Just as we stared to get hungry, we sensed a line forming near the outdoor kitchen and joined in. The meal was served buffet style in a long line, each dish served as you passed. It all looked so good, I only had the willpower to turn down the last dish – green beans. Everyone ate, standing or sitting in the grass, surrounded by the place most of the ingredients came from.
