On October 13, Santa Cruz non-profit Homeless Garden Project welcomes California cuisine czarina Alice Waters to their Natural Bridges Farm for a Fall Farm Supper benefit. Local chefs including Michael Clark of Michael’s on Main, Katherine Stern of La Posta, Santos Majano from Soif, and chef Alyssa Twelker will create the family-style dinner for a truly memorable evening.
“The evening will not only be a delicious one, but delightful and entertaining. This supper, inspired by Alice’s philosophies of simply prepared locally grown food will connect our community with social interests and positive intentions,” said Patrice Boyle, owner of La Posta and Soif.
The evening will include music, wine pairings, and a 4-course family style dinner. Diners will be able to handpick their fresh organic herbs and salad greens from the Natural Bridges Farm to add to the dinner. A speech from Alice Waters, founder and owner of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, and Homeless Garden Project’s founder Paul Lee, will add to the presentation. “The Homeless Garden Project represents the deep therapy that comes from working so closely with your food in the garden,” said Alice Waters. “It proves that this works.”
Tickets to the event are $200. Special VIP packages are available which includes a private meet and greet with Alice Waters. There will also be book signing options available.
