Hello Foodie Friends,

For those of you who have been following me for some time, then you know I get around… to food and wine events, of course! I’m all about unique experiences, whether I am creating them, working them or attending them as a guest. For the past couple seasons I had been a part of an awesome crew of foodies who work their butts off to pull off a fantastic dining experience on a farm with local celebrity chefs, mixologists, sommeliers, craft beer companies and other local artisans all under one roof with rockin’ live entertainment. But this time, I had the great pleasure to attend the event as a guest and experience it first hand from the other side. The Swanks (Darrin & Jodi) are the gracious hosts who welcome guests onto their farm each season to share in their “bucolic farm life”  while breaking bread together under a spacious pole barn, enjoying dishes prepared by seasoned local chefs featuring local ingredients which of course include vibrant, seasonal Swank produce. Swank Table events run each Sunday from the beginning of December through April with each event benefiting a specific charity. The night I attended was dedicated to The Caridad Center. These events would not be possible without a whole slew of sponsors, so please take the time to check them out and appreciate all that they have done to help keep these incredible events going.

A great time was had by all. If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience one of these events, I highly recommend you do so. For more info and a schedule of the remaining events this season, visit Swank Specialty Produce.  Swank Farm is available for private events and weddings as well.

Until we eat again…

I send you delicious wishes, xo
