Food & Folklore Presents "Eating from the Garden"
MAY FOOD & FOLKLORE IS FRESH FROM THE GARDEN
Farm to Table DC's Oren Molovinsky Making Connections Between Farmers and Chefs
Southern food traditions have always celebrated the best of what's in season with the reminder that no one leaves the table without finishing their vegetables. Eatonville Restaurant's Food & Folklore gives vegetable lovers a reason to linger even longer for the May dinner event "Eating From the Garden" Tuesday, May 24 at 6:30 PM.
Guest "foodlorist" for the evening is Oren Molovinsky, co-founder of Farm to Table DC, which connects area chefs to products sourced and sold primarily in the region. Farm to Table DC was created by restaurateurs for restaurateurs and provides top quality products by connecting chefs to farmers.
DC has witnessed a renaissance of farmers markets, urban and regional sustainable farms, community gardens and cooperatives. Eatonville Restaurant's daily menu draws from the Washington metropolitan region's cornucopia; and May's Food & Folklore shines a spotlight on some of the highlights of the season in the prix fixe menu prepared by Executive Chef Garret Fleming:
Crispy Smashed Herb Crusted Fingerling Potatoes with Saffron Aioli and Persillade
Wild Mushroom and Fennel Crostini with Smoked Tomato Jam
Late Spring Soupe au Pistou
Salt-Roasted Beet Napoleon with Citrus-Pepper Mascarpone and Baby Chard
Charred Squash Caponata with Chickpea Fritters
Seasonal Fruit Galette
The price per person is $45 plus tax and gratuity ($57.60 all-inclusive).
Food & Folklore is a monthly series at Eatonville Restaurant that intertwines storytelling and fabulous food. Food and Folklore is wrapped in the spirit of gifted storyteller and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston's brand of hospitality a generosity with food.
