Taste of Marin - 2007 style
In 2007, Marin Organic and Marin Agricultural Land Trust have teamed up with the Marin Farmers Market Association supporting and promoting Marin's agriculture. The celebration on August 26 kicks off at St. Vincent's School for Boys in Marinwood, with bistro tables, wandering accordion players, and Marin's farmers and ranchers on hand to talk about their work and what they are growing, all while offering samples of what they produce prepared by Marin's finest chefs.
Included in the evening's line-up are chefs from well-known restaurants and food purveyors: Insalata's, the Olema Inn and Restaurant, Small Shed Flatbreads, Cork, McEvoy, Cowgirl Cantina, Piatti Mill Valley, Station House Café, Pamela Ferrari Catering, Drakes Beach Café, Indian Peach Food Company, Point Reyes Blue, Three Twins Ice Cream, Comforts, Straus Family Creamery, Pine Cone Diner, Sol Food, Fairfax Scoop, Lark Creek Inn, Drakes Bay Oyster Farm, Hog Island Oyster Company, Priscilla's, Bovine Bakery, Brickmaiden Breads, Good Earth Natural Foods, Marin Sun Farms, Stella Cucina, Table, and more.
The event begins at 4 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, silent auction, and an opportunity to meet the farmers and ranchers who grew the food, as well as the chefs who prepared it. At the close of the silent auction, the guests will be led to a sit-down dinner, with each course prepared by a different restaurant. A live auction, speakers, and toasts to the farmers and chefs will serve as the dining entertainment, followed by dancing under the stars to blues and vocals by Maria Muldaur. It is an evening not to be missed.
