join miss annie at her fundraiser, raise (veggies on) the roof!
Yesterday I took a walk through the Greenmarket picking up the last ingredients for this Saturday night's fundraising dinner for Growing Chefs in Brooklyn. The lineup is wonderful--an evening of tasty treats and live music (a banjo jumped on board with the two fiddlers last week!) The auction (starting at 9p) has grown to include some incredible neighborhood and watershed gifts, from apple trees to seed stock. And starting at 7pm, I'm most proud to say that we'll be joined by several of my former culinary students in the kitchen with chef Cody Utzman. It takes a lot to keep this farmer awake past 10.30pm, but I'm excited for this weekend: a beautiful snowfall, good food, and a celebration of the local, the springtime, and the simple ingredients that make tremendously savory meals.
There are only a few tickets left for this wonderful event. If you haven't RSVP, please do so here. If you can't join us, be sure to follow our adventures at our new Growing Chefs page. I hope to see you on Saturday night!
All my very best,
