Our week of cultural happenings gets off and running with this agrarian dining experience. Through roaming culinary events, Dinner on the Farm works to connect people back to the land and to the farmers and artisans who are making our communities a better place to live. There will be lots of deliciousness, interesting neighbors and enough beer for all.
There is limited seating available on the "Dinner on the Farm Bus”, which will leave from Nya Carnegiebryggeriet, Ljusslingan 15, at 14:30. Please RSVP above separately if you plan on using that mode of transportation.

We first connected with Dinner on the Farm founder Monica Walch while producing last year's Slow Supper in the Twin Cities . She has since joined our colorful cast to create unique local food experiences designed to celebrate farms, chefs and food entrepreneurs who are dedicated to good, sustainable food for the 2014 tour.
See the Dinner on the Farm menu and the stories behind the rest of our collaborators below.
Säby Säteri Chef Richard Poland has worked in several of the top restaurants in Stockholm, and his creativity has taken him to the semi-finals in the prestigious Chef of the Year in Sweden. With his honest and down to earth culinary style, Chef Poland uses both innovative and traditional means to prepare and preserve the best qualities of food. The food served at Säby Säteri takes what nature provides, in season, and uses traditional Scandinavian techniques to preserve them for use year-round. Focusing on local produce and foodstuffs from nearby farms, Chef Poland presents food in a way that reminds guests of the land it comes from.
Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson brings to the table ten years of culinary experience as a cook, educator and activist. As a graduate of the University of Gastronomic Sciences (Pollenzo, Italy) and an active member of Slow Food, Andrew supports local food systems in communities across the country. Hired by The Brewery in 2013, Andrew demonstrates and embodies Brookln Brewmaster Garrett Oliver's philosophy on beer and food. Chef Andrew also has powerful hands. Come see what they can do.
"One of the things that makes Dinner on the Farm truly special is that it really manages to capture that classic romantic feel. You can easily hunker down on a blanket with a significant other and just take in the scenic farm view or you can bring the entire family for a good old-fashioned community-style get together."
