Chelsea Community Kitchen’s dinner and movie event proved so successful last year that it returns this fall Thursday, September 29, 2016. Robin Hills Farm is again hosting and helping sponsor by having the students in their Garden Party Series, Mediterranean Style cooking class show off their new skills by preparing the meal. Tickets for the meal are $45 and can be obtained at the CCK website (see details below).
Dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m., to be served outdoors in a rustic farm setting. After dinner, a film about local food issues will be shown outdoors in the new amphitheater at Robin Hills Farm on a big screen. Bring a blanket to sit on the grass. Those who wish to just attend the movie can plan to show up at 7:30 pm. Admission to the movie is free, although donations to help cover the cost are welcome.
The screening includes two vignettes about different cooking methods using “air” (the science of bread-making) and “earth” (fermentation of food) and how they have impacted our cooking methods over time. The film will be followed by a Q and A period with a few local food experts to discuss their own use of these methods in their businesses.
The menu being prepared by the Garden Party class plans to include:
Appetizer: mushroom risotto.
Salad: grilled watermelon and cucumber with goat cheese with lavender balsamic dressing.
Entree: grilled lamb chops with honey mint glaze, on wheat berry and chick pea salad with roasted vegetables.
Dessert: olive oil cake and rosewater ice cream.
