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.

Join us for our “Beef and Beer” celebration to kick off the summer season.

The subject matter is grass fed beef and the questions are: Where can you buy it on the Cape (?),  How does it taste (?), What is the big deal about it (?), and of course, the very important question, once it becomes a grilled juicy burger , what can you possibly pair it with (?)….
If these questions have been causing you to lose sleep, (or like me, to stop eating burgers) we have the answers. We are providing a taste and tour of all flavors of Cape Cod Beer and a smattering of sliders and Cape Cod Porter braised short ribs, from Northeast Family Farms.
Each hour we will be providing tours of the expanded digs at Cape Cod Beer (we are talking 5,000 square feet of space!). Todd Marcus, head brewmaster along with his wife Beth, have created an amazing business devoted to making local artisan beer. With a couple of gold medals from GIBC under their belt, for their Cape Cod Red (American Amber) and Dunkel Weizen (wheat beer) the tasting is sure to please.
We are also setting up a grill,  which will be tended to by Dole and Bailey’s Northeast Family Farms (NEFF).  This is our opportunity to  be educated about one of the finest meat products around New England. Dole and Bailey and NEFF has created a supply chain to connect the local farmer to the chef and markets that desire their products. All the cattle is grass-fed with a strict set of protocols to be raised slowly without the use of hormones and feed grade antibiotics. The result is an authentic, artisan food.
Date: Saturday, May 30th
Location: Cape Cod Beer
                1336 Phinney’s Lane
                Hyannis, MA
Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM  (tours every hour)
Cost: $13.00 adult and $8.00 per child
(Alternative refreshments will also be available)
Every hour on the hour, a representative will offer a tour of Cape Cod Beer and representatives from Northeast Family Farms be on hand to answer all product information. 
Stop by for 10 minutes for tasters and nibbles or come and BBQ with us for the afternoon.  We look forward to kicking off the season with Cape Cod Beer and learning more about NEFF.

Island Merchant Community Supper – June 10th

by Slow Food Cape Cod on May 18, 2009

Join us for our next Community Supper at The Island Merchant in Hyannis, Wednesday June 10th. A special menu has been created for Slow Food – see below (yum!),  and we will have the chance to meet Les Hammilla, owner of Barnstable SeaFarms. Bev and Joe Dunn are the dynamic duo behind the scenes at the Island Merchant.  Their focus is to infuse local Cape Cod foods with an Island flair. Bev runs the front of the house, while Joe is our man in the kitchen, leading the troops. You do not have to just take my word on it – they were honored with  The Best of Boston’s 2007   award for Fusion food. Island Merchant is also  going to be included in an upcoming spot on Chronicle with Anthony Everett. In addition to the regional menu’s, they provide a home base for local musicians which earned them a spot on Cape Cod’s “A List”.
Speaking of the “A List”, we have a guest speaker, Les Hammilla, from Barnstable SeaFarms, to talk to use about his endeavor in growing oysters and littlenecks in the cold waters of Cape Cod. He also made the “A List”, their business will harvest per order, ensuring the freshest possible shellfish – we will be sampling in our first course.
