Margaret Noon of Slow Food New Jersey will be in the studio tonight to talk about this weekend’s farm-to-table event, called Sustenance on the Farm, @ Starbright Farm in Andover, New Jersey. These delicious, informative and wonderfully social events are inspired to help engage people in greater understanding of the important role local farms play in the community and to have a connection to their neighborly farmers.
As it turns out Jen and I share a CSA share from Starbright Farm’s CSA program and get farmer John Krueger’s weekly newsletters on how things are going on the farm. While he is extremely busy getting ready for this weekend’s event, he might just take some time out to come to the studio and talk with us tonight . . . you’ll have to tune in to find out!
John Krueger will host and chef Andrea Carbine, a James Beard Award semi-finalist and co-owner of A Toute Heure in Cranford,NJ will prepare an elegant farm-to-table five-course dinner centered around Starbrite Farm’s organic and heirloom vegetables, as well as grass-fed meat and poultry from a nearby farm. Dessert will be prepared by Chef Diane Pinder of Donna & Company Artisan Chocolates – yum.
Proceeds from the event will go to Slow Food New Jersey’s earth stewardship and food justice programs.
The event is scheduled for this Sunday, August 23 from 4 – 7pm. Visit the event website to get all the details. Hope to see you there!
or you can tune in tonight and hear all about it!
