By Edible Madison 0
MADISON Wis.—September 11, 2014—Edible Madison will host its inaugural Dinner Service event on Sunday, October 19. The event will take place at Primrose Valley Farm, a beautiful, organic produce farm located near Belleville, 25 minutes from Madison. Event proceeds will benefit the Madison Parks Foundation. Edible Madison supports the creation of an educational garden space in Central Park.
Guests will enjoy a locally-sourced, three-course dinner with wine pairings presented by James Beard Foundation 2014 Best Chef Northwest awardee Naomi Pomeroy of BEAST in Portland and James Beard Foundation 2012 Best Chef Midwest awardee Tory Miller of L’Etoile in Madison. Wine pairings will be selected in partnership by L’Etoile and Merchant.
Preceding dinner, Kyle Linden Webster of Expatriate cocktail bar in Portland, and Thor Messer and the bar team of Madison’s Merchant will present craft beer and cocktails with a Madison-meets-Portland theme. Guests will also enjoy a diverse offering of canapés prepared by members of the Madison Area Chefs Network, including Chef Casey Trumble of Brasserie V, Chef Luke Zahm of Driftless Cafe, Chef Tom Welther of The Edgewater, Chef Timothy Smith of Forequarter, Chef Dan Fox of Heritage Tavern, Chef Anna Dickson of Merchant, Chefs Tim and Elizabeth Dahl of Nostrano, and Chef Dan Bonanno of A Pig in a Fur Coat.
With this event, Edible Madison aims to celebrate the food movement of southern Wisconsin, shine a national spotlight on our distinct culinary region, and raise funds to teach kids vital life skills: how to grow and cook good, nutritious food.
“Having Naomi and Kyle come to Wisconsin to get immersed in our food scene and do a food-and-drink-awesomeness-exchange with Tory, and other leading chefs and mixologists from our community is super exciting,” says Jamie Lamonde, Editor-in-Chief of Edible Madison. “With this event, we want to raise funds for a great cause, provide a one-of-a-kind food experience and have a lot of fun together in a beautiful setting.”
The Presenting Sponsors of Dinner Service 2014 are A La Crate Vintage Rentals, AP Whaley Seed, Art & Sons, Context Clothing, Heartland Credit Union, Kickapoo Coffee, Organic Valley, True Endeavors and Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
Tickets are $160 and can be purchased at ediblemadison.com/dinnerservice.
