Chef Jared Posocco of Àvert Brasserie will be featured at the Aug. 18 ‘Hadley and Occum’ farm dinner event.
The DORO Restaurant Group of West Hartford is teaming up with Sub Edge Farm in Simsbury to offer a cornucopia of delectable summer and fall events! You can feed your appetite for fresh and hearty locally grown foods and quench your thirst for knowledge – and exquisite cocktails, beer and wine!
Hadley & Occum is an adventurous evening that celebrates and supports local farms. Every dinner begins with a farm tour by your hosts Rodger and Isabelle Phillips. Our host farm, Sub Edge, has many things in common with the DORO Restaurant Group including a commitment to using sustainable farming and business practices.
Following cocktail hour with a selection of hors d’oeuvres, the meal will begin with a vichyssoise showcasing Sub Edge potatoes. Salad, locally-caught seafood, and duck, along with side dishes featuring local produce, will follow. A sumptuous dessert will complete the evening. The complete menu can be found below.
Hadley & Occum Dinners are not suitable for young children. Vegetarian meals are available if the request is made at the time of the reservation. No additional substitutions are available. Please bring or wear the appropriate layers. Additionally you will tour the farm before sitting for dinner and the terrain will be uneven, dusty and muddy so please wear sturdy comfortable shoes. High-heels, no matter how comfortable will result in a sinking experience. Sunscreen, parasols, sweaters and sunglasses are all appropriate accoutrements.
Each dinner is cooked from scratch and showcases that day’s best produce. Because the ingredients are sourced daily from local farmers, ranchers and fisherman, each menu will be different and we are not able to provide one in advance. However, we can assure you that you will have an incredible dining experience with the most local, fresh and flavorful foods available!
Sub Edge Farm is located at 199 Town Farm Rd., Farmington, CT.
