Southern Charmed Farm Dinner

Join us for our little house farm Dinner in the old canning kitchen on Saturday, June 29th, 6-9pm.

This month features a Southern-inspired meal, paying homage to Chef Kimi's birthplace. Southern food is considered one of the only true "food cultures" in our country, with deep roots especially located in the low country of South Carolina. Southern food has seen a revival as of late, and Chef Kimi can wax poetic about growing up in the mud flats on the South Carolina coast, tossing shrimp nets and steaming oysters on a regular basis. Make sure you read the Pat Conroy quote at the end of this mailer for a poignant description of that lowcountry life. The Skagit Valley is known for upholding some of these same food culture values, as the locals value seafood, smaller-scale farming, and a more down-to-earth lifestyle. Chef Kimi looks forward to sharing her culture, while also highlighting the beauty and abundance of the Skagit Valley at this very special dinner.

Hors d'oeuvres will be served next to the bonfire and under the canopy of our giant Black Walnut tree. Dinner will follow in the little house with delicious food, and great company.  The meal will feature ingredients sourced from the Skagit Valley and other proximal locations. Menu:
