You know it’s the end of the season when it’s the final farm dinner out at Swank Farm. And this season has been stunning, with innovative themes and menus, great music, beautiful décor under that big pole barn and the simple magic of a long communal table full of new and old friends.
We had a farm to market dinner (with fresh local goods for sale as a bonus!), we had an Argentine barbecue and a Chinese New Year. We had an Oscar-themed dinner, and the always spectacular diner en blanc, just last weekend. And that was just a few of them. There is always an element of delight as the theme unfolds course by course, and the sun slips down over the treetops and the music plays on, and farm owners and hosts Jodi and Darren Swank mingle and make sure all their guests are happy and taken care of.
The Swank Farm dinners are still one of the highlights of our winter season, and we hate to see them end.
There are a few tickets left for this year’s last dinner, which is all about the piggy—featuring Jarod Higgins, executive chef, at Cut 432, Chris Miracolo, executive chef, S3, Fort Lauderdale, Julia Ning, chef/owner, Station 5 at Table & Bar, Miami, David Bouchard from the Cooper manning the bar, and others. Music will be by the popular Hootenanny and tickets are $160 each. The event is from 5 to 9, and rain or shine. For tickets and more information log on to SwankSpecialtyProduce.com
This is your last chance this season to get down on the farm for some seriously great food and company!
