Friday September 14 – The Elevated Table
A celebration of the autumn harvest and the farmers who provide it, our $200-per-plate will raise critical funds for Local Food Alliance’s operating expenses and initiatives. A mid-September evening, cocktails made with local spirits, seasonal fruit “shrugs” and fresh herbs; hors d’oeuvres with Idaho ingredients; and the piece de résistance – a four-course, wine-paired family-style dinner at a long, white-clothed table on the farm with local farmers as the honored guests. The event simultaneously implements mission-critical strategies: demonstration of the unparalleled taste of fresh, seasonal, local food; in-person connections between community members and those who produce their food; and the opportunity to learn about how our food is produced. This event takes place at Nighthawk Farm in Bellevue, Idaho.
