"Forum on the Green" - Farm-to-Table Dinner at Congress Hall
Cape May Forum’s Annual Slow Food Dinner
Returns Thursday, April 10, 2014
For a fourth year, the Cape May Forum invites Cape May residents and Spring visitors to a very special seasonal dinner. Come out and dine “green” on Thursday, April 10 from 6 to 9 pm, as Cape May Forum (CMF) partners once again with Congress Hall and Slow Food South Jersey Shore to host “Forum on the Green: A Farm-to-Table Dinner at Congress Hall."
Congress Hall's Farm-to-Table expert, Executive Chef Jeremy Einhorn, will craft this unique dining experience, with the freshest ingredients from Beach Plum Farm, from JAH’s Creation Organic Farms (CSA), and other local sources. Join CMF in the Congress Hall Ballroom at 6pm for an unforgettable five-course dinner, beginning with appetizers of locally made cheeses and baked breads, and a raw-bar of fresh Cape May Salts from Delaware Bay, provided by Atlantic Fisheries.
The annual Farm-To-Table Dinner is a tradition at the Cape May Forum. Participants look forward to it every year. In 2011 the CMF annual program posed a question: “Guess What’s Coming for Dinner? - The Politics of Food in the 21st Century,” and explored everything from the gourmet food movement in the developed world, to food scarcity in the developing world. Inspired by the work of the national Slow Food movement and our partner Slow Food South Jersey Shore, Cape May Forum has continued its efforts to support sustainable farming. In south Jersey, there is abundant opportunity to stay connected to this important cause. CMF’s Farm-to-Table dinner is one way to highlight both good food and a good cause.
The ticket proceeds benefit Cape May Forum programs and scholarships. (A tax deductible donation receipt of $30 will be given for each ticket.)
