What do you get when you combine enthusiasm for community, along with talented chefs using savory, fresh, local products? You get the winning combination for this year’s Farm Dinner at Fossil Creek Creamery.

“This year we will include a farmers market along with the dinner,” said, Joyce Bittner, owner of Fossil Creek Creamery. Guests will enjoy talking directly to the chefs and local producers of meat, dairy and produce.

Once again Chef Akos Szabo will coordinate his talented team of chefs which include Chef Michael Dahling, Sysco Food Systems; Chef Mark Hamilton, The Rim Club; Chef Ed Farrow, Music Instrument Museum; Chef Gerardo Moceri, Gerardo’s Firewood Café; Chef Gary Bedsworth and Chef Tamie Coe of Tamie Coe Cakes.

Wine pairing from local wineries such as Dos Cabezas Winery will be a special part of the affair.

If you ask Chef Akos why he offered to coordinate the dinner he would say, “There is a need — there is a community — so let’s put the two together.”

The dinner is Saturday, Sept. 22 at Fossil Creek Creamery, 10379 W. Fossil Creek Road in Strawberry. Event begins at 4 p.m. Seating is limited to first 100 persons. Tickets are $75 and a portion is tax deductible.
