The Muir Ranch Farm-To-Table Supper Experience

Saturday at Muir Ranch School Farm in Pasadena, we soaked up the blue skies and balmy temperatures at the 4th “Field to Vase” Farm-to-table Supper of the 2015 season – a celebration of all things locally grown and harvested! From garden strolls, to ‘flowers on your head’, the evening was filled with colorful floral gems and savory seasonal food prepared by talented local chiefs using produce from the school’s garden.

The Menu: 

Muir Ranch "Weed" Porridge made with Muir Ranch grown
Purslane & Amaranth Tempura topped with Tomato Confit 
North Carolina Style BBQ Free Range Pork Shoulder 
Chambord Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Cana de Cabra Cheese 
Spicy Korean Grilled Cauliflower 
Watermelon-Tomato Gazpacho with Strawberry Habanero

There were several Garden Writers in town celebrating the 67th GWA Annual Symposium who also joined in on the festivities. With a field full of flowers and vegetable, local chiefs and farmers, Muir Ranch students (the kids who grow and eat the veggies - our next generation of farmers) there's plenty of inspirational stories to tell.

If you missed the celebration at Muir Ranch, join them for another harvest supper in October!
