"FIELDS ON THE SACO" COMBINES THE BEST IN
ARTFULLY PREPARED LOCAL CUISINE WITH FARMS, ARTISTS AND SLOW FOOD MOVEMENTS FROM MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
North Conway, NH - Take two neighboring New Hampshire and Maine farms and combine them with an award-winning chef and Mt Washington Valley's green team, and what results is a fabulous five course meal and event held in the fields on the Saco River. Mark the calendar for September 6 for the "Fields on the Saco" a very special event honoring the land, family tradition and your discriminating taste. Presented by Maine's Weston's Farm, and New Hampshire's Sherman Farm, along with Executive Chef Bryant Alden of Chef's Market, and the Mt. Washington Valley Preservation Association, on this night alone everything that touches your taste buds during an extraordinary meal will have been raised in the fertile ground of two bordering family farms in Maine and New Hampshire. But there is more than a distinctive meal; in keeping with the Slow Food movement developing in Mt Washington Valley, there will be guided farm tours, farm stores filled with foods, flowers and locally made products, Maine's distinctive Cold River Vodka , a corn maize, local artisan demonstrations, a "Wet Art" sale (wet art refers to artworks created on site), live music and an auction. The event will support Mt Washington Valley's Green Team's efforts to engage Mt Washington Valley residents and businesses in adopting eco-friendly practices to reduce their environmental impact, and the White Mountain Community Health Center's food pantry.
Participants will be treated to a five course meal, set on the fields from whence the food came. Each person will be offered a handmade plate made by local potter Becca Van Fleet and locally made napkins, plus other take home gifts. The menu, accompanied by perfectly paired wines and Maine Cold River vodka, will be artfully presented by Chef Bryant Alden and wife Patti, owners of the Chef's Market of North Conway. This chef-team understands the extraordinary advantage that locally grown and carefully handled food can bring to a culinary experience. The menu will include:
