Community Farmers' Dinner at Sage Restaurant in Newport Beach
Their colorful tables are surrounded by an equally colorful crowd at farmers' markets all over the Southland. Alex Weiser of Weiser Family Farms, in Tehachapi and Lucerne, presides over an endless array of tiny, jewel-toned potatoes, purple and lime cauliflower, gleaming parsnips, and French melons. In his trademark straw fedora, he's seen hobnobbing with star chefs like Mark Peel, Suzanne Goin and Ray Garcia. Peter Schaner of Schaner Family Farms in North San Diego County, tells the market folks about his Guinea hens and Rhode Island reds with understated pride, at tables laden with a rainbow of beets, Meyer lemons, and blood oranges.  

Chef Rich Mead of Sage Restaurant in Newport Beach has featured the produce of Weiser Family Farms and Schaner Family Farms prominently on his menu for years, and has invited both farmers to attend February's Slow Food OC event at Sage Restaurant on Sunday, February 22, from 4 - 7 p.m.

The dinner, held on the patio (if weather permits), is open to both members and non-members, and will consist of four courses featuring the sustainably-grown, strikingly rare and heirloom produce from each farm, plus sustainable seafood and locally-raised meat or poultry. An optional wine pairing for each course can be sipped for a small additional cost.

By championing the local farm, regional cuisine, and sustainable practices these last twenty years, Slow Food has revitalized the way we eat now. At the communal table, talk may range from seed banks to school gardens to solar ovens, but everyone meets under the banner of the delicious and the belief that growing, preparing, and eating good food together is a rewarding and effective way to organize a community. Come taste how good the Slow life can be.
