"Essentially farm-to-table means harnessing the produce and livestock of locally grown farmers and ranchers; to put it simply, buying local. Most produce loses its nutrients within 24 hours of harvesting.
Our MeetUp Group with
Executive Chef Joanie Moore
On Monday evening Executive Chef, Joanie Moore, provided a delicious dinner for our meetup group of nine and about 40 others at the farm. We ate at Kai Kai Farm's large open screened dining hall. There were larges screens where we could watch as the chef prepared our dinner in a demonstration/teaching setting. We learned new cooking techniques and enjoy this creative meal together where questions were answered during the class.
Kai Kai Farm it a beautiful farm on 40 acres in the heartland of western Martin County. Bordered by picturesque pastures and towering eucalyptus trees the rows run long with beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts and 80 other varieties of grown-in-the-ground artisanal vegetables. The dining hall is country-chic.
We had our on own table together and what a fun evening with an intelligent, interesting group of women. I hope we do it again soon.
