Special summer harvest dinner

With such abundance bursting out of the ground now, we are excited to offer a very special dinner on Tuesday, August 23 -- a five-course tasting menu inspired by the summer bounty, sourced from our gardens and neighbor farms, and celebrating all that is outstanding in the field. Chef Walker and Sous Chef Brendan have been working up a fantastic menu that will truly showcase summer on a plate.

All things garlic, and so much more...
Sep 24

It's that time of year again... the festival that stinks - and we love it! Come experience garlic in all its tasty, pungent, healing and mystical glory. Not to mention scads of music, art, hula hoops, sustainable living workshops and the greenest festival in the area - with solar-powered stages, composting galore, and creating only 3 bags of garbage for 10,000 people last year.

So follow your heart (and nose) to the 18th Annual North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival on September 24-25.  And at 11:30am on Saturday, our very own Chef Walker Widner will be there demonstrating one of his favorite farm-fresh creations on the kitchen demo stage - all under the angled mirror so you can catch his every move - he will slice, he will dice, and so much more. Represent, sir!
