Our 2nd Farm to Table!! CLASH

by Slow Food Cape Cod on August 22, 2010

Farm Produce

Join us for the 2nd Slow Food Cape Cod “Farm to Table” as part of CLASH – Cape Land and Sea Harvest. Spend an afternoon at Coonamessett Farm in Falmouth and enjoy a sampling of freshly shucked oysters, listen to live jazz music, take in a farm tour and sit down to an elegant five course community meal.

A little bit of a twist, we plan to feature recipes from the cookbook Edible, A Celebration of Local Foods, as our inspiration for the meal. Tracey Ryder and Carole Topalian, Cofounders of Edible Communities Publications and creators of the book will be joining us. Edible Ojai was their first publication, Edible Cape Cod the second, thanks to Doug and Dianne Langeland, who also started CLASH.

Farmer Ron Smolowitz, is one of the local heroes showcased in the book. “Coonamessett Days, Jamaican Nights”, elegantly written by Tom Dott, “What Ron Smolowitz has done with Coonamessett Farm is like what the Swiss Army did to a knife”. I agree, Farmer Ron and his wife Roxanna were  ahead of their time, in that they created a breathtaking space, complete with a dance floor, to host farm to table dinners, long before they became the rage. You just can’t get any stronger of a link to our food, our farmers, and our community.
