Farmhouse Table Supper: “Saffron and Salt: A feast inspired by the cuisine of coastal Iran”
July 21 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$75
East Forty Farm is a working farm, and as you dine you will hear the cow’s bells as they graze in the field; contented grunts from the pigs in their forest pasture; and assorted clucks and quacks. The early evening is filled with bird song, and the Medomak River is illuminated by the setting sun in the distance. Each supper has a theme and the summer series is prepared by guest chefs.
We travel to Persia for the inspiration for this supper, prepared by Louisa Shafia. The menu will feature local seafood and in season vegetables spiced with exotic seasonings.
