Frog Hollow Farm presents...
Bravo’s Top Chef: All-Stars winner Richard Blais cooks dinner at Frog Hollow Farm to benefit Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse Foundation and The Edible Schoolyard. Blais has designed a menu for Peaches & Tango: A Dinner in the Orchard that focuses on organic ingredients grown by our local farmers. Performing live music and accompanied by their dancers is Trio Garufa, considered the most versatile contemporary interpreters of Argentine Tango. Diners will enjoy watching Chef Richard Blais prepare their meal with his dynamic flair and afterwards are welcome to join the dance floor to enjoy instruction by world class Tango dancers.
Ticket proceeds provide funds for Alice Waters’ The Edible Schoolyard and The Chez Panisse Foundation, whose mission envisions a school curriculum and school lunch program where growing, cooking, and sharing food at the table gives students the knowledge and values to build a humane and sustainable future.
Farmer Al Courchesne, owner and farmer of Frog Hollow Farm, has always dreamed about hosting an event pairing together Peaches and Tango. The combination of his legendary fruit with the romanticism of Tango is a match written in the stars. This year his vision becomes reality. Join us for an evening of fine dining, dancing, and supporting a great cause.
