Swank Farms’ sold-out “Farm Market” Sunday dinner last weekend was a smash—with fresh inspired food and a slew of vendors as an added bonus selling fresh eggs, olive oils, caviar and more. The music by Sosos was perfect, a cool front was blowing in, and it was simply South Florida dining at its best. On a farm. Sigh.
The happy news is that we do not have to wait another month for the next one—which is slated for January 31! “The Year of The Monkey” celebrating the Chinese New Year and benefitting Slow Food Miami, will feature an Asian-inspired menu by Chef Aaron Brooks of Edge Steak & Bar, Miami, Chef Adonay Tafur of The Dutch, Miami Beach, Chef Alex Chang of Vagabond, Miami and pastry chef Max Santiago of The Salty Donut, Miami. Melanie Robertson–Ober of Cordon Bleu Catering in West Palm will be the sommelier, and Lauren Shandelman, bar manager at The Edge, will be mixing up cocktails. Music will be by the popular Killbillies.
The farm dinners are unique, delicious and drive home the farm-to-table message about as directly as you can—with fresh veggies and greens right from the farm. The company is convivial, the wine flows and the stars come out.
We say make your plans now before you miss another one.
