Summertime is Fun and Delicious

2nd Annual Local Food Fest to benefit Farm Fresh RIFood Fest

Wednesday, August 6th, 5pm-8pm at Castle Hill Inn in Newport

As the keeper of the official guest list*, I can say that tickets are selling fast for this event. Buy your tickets 10 minutes ago if you want to come. (Tickets are $45 each.)

The Local Food Fest is such a deal. There will be live cooking of delicious dishes cooked with locally grown food, featuring 9 chefs from awesome restaurants I normally can’t afford (i.e. Gracie*s, Local 121, Nick’s on Broadway, New Rivers, Cafe Zelda, Castle Hill, Blackstone Catering, Newport Restaurant Group, and DeWolf Tavern). Newport Vineyards, Sakonnet Vineyards, Trinity Brewhouse, Newport Storm, and Narragensett Brewery will be offering tasting of their local beverages (a cash bar offers full sized libations). Plus cheese from Narragansett Creamery, bread from Seven Stars and Olga’s Cup and Saucer, Rhody Fresh Dairy, and coffee from Blue State and New Harvest.

Superchief Trio will be playing, offering you a more scenic opportunity for dancing, overlooking the beautiful views from the end of Aquidneck Island. There will also be a really wonderful silent auction with farm tours, cheese makin’ classes and cheese tastin’ classes, and a chauffeured tour of local vineyards.

Finally, your beloved, hard-working, and heroic local farmers will be showcasing their summertime harvest for your enjoyment.

*I suppose this is as good a time as any to reveal my true identity. Gawd, it’s been really difficult to juggle these two personas!
