If you’re looking for something a little more authentic than chips and queso at a chain Tex-Mex restaurant, try City Roots Farm. On Monday, May 5, at 6:30 p.m., they will be serving a Mexican-inspired Farm-to-Table meal that includes:
Dulce de Leche Rum Cake with Spicy Pineapple-Tequila Sorbet
City Roots is the state’s only local sustainable organic farm. It hosts regular dinners to showcase locally grown and raised foods, prepared in unique ways by local chefs Kristian Niemi and Travis Rayle.
At the start of each meal, guests are given an introduction to the menu and the farms that provided the ingredients, said event organizer Vanessa Driscoll. The chefs discuss the menu and its inspiration, the local farmers share the story of their work, and wine representatives offer information on the menu pairings.
Tickets are $60 per person and include an opening cocktail and wine pairings with the four-course dinner. To order tickets, visit cityroots.org.
