Ciao! On Thursday evening, the Olde Beaufort Farmers' Market held it's annual Farm to Table Dinner.  The theme was delightfully Italian with all of the produce, breads and meats provided by our market vendors.  Three incredible chefs created a culinary extravaganza experience enjoyed by all.  Our sincere thanks to our three talented chefs:  Wendy Park of Beaufort Grocery Company, Jon McGregor of Clawson’s and Aqua Restaurant, and Elizabeth Kopf of Turner St. Market for collaborating this year for this fine meal.

Our diners began their evening with appetizers of Toasted Crostini, White Bean, Garlic & Basil Spread, Summer Vegetable Caponata, Caprese Skewers, Roasted Tomato and Fennel Shooters with Gorgonzola and Assorted Flatbreads paired with Wines, Proesecco, Beer, Iced Tea as selected. Community fellowship was enjoyed while listening to the acoustic music provided by Billy Mutschler during the evening.

After remarks by Cindy Bunch, Executive Market Manager, diners were invited to the main course served by our ready volunteers and included Mixed Green Salad, Slow Cooked Beef Osso Bucco, Chicken Piccata, Eggplant Parmesan, Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary, Italian Squash Casserole, Penne Pasta with Pesto Butter, accompanied by Homemade Breads and Focaccia.  

As the sun was setting and sailboats gliding up Taylor's Creek on a gentle current, the meal finished beautifully with the dessert table including Panna Cotta with Strawberry Basil Sauce, Tiramisu and Pistachio Cookies. 

Grazie! A hearty thank you goes out to all of our ticket holders and guests. Our Farm to Table Dinner event supports our scholarship fund which awards to local graduating seniors pursuing higher education. As a non-profit, funds from the ticket sales go directly to our scholarship effort and we are very grateful for your support of our dinners.  The Sea to Table Dinner will take place on October 3rd.
