American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Homer, Alaska
Sat, July 29, 2017, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM AKDT
Find Beauty and Adventure at this Destination Dinner in Alaska
Treat yourself to the experience of a lifetime at the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner in Homer, Alaska. Plus, enjoy an exclusive tour of Scenic Place Peonies with farmer Beth Van Sandt.
Guests will sip on locally sourced wine over lively conversation with like-minded dinner guests and feast on an artisanal, locally sourced meal.
Throughout the meal, diners will be captivated by the floral designs of Ariella Chezar, florist, farmer and author of “Flowers for the Table” and the upcoming book “The Flower Workshop." Ariella specializes in using flowers from her farm in upstate New York and she'll bring her signature style - loose, wild and playful - to floral designs that showcase the striking Alaskan peony.
After a four-course meal served family style and insightful talks and discussions from the farmer, chef and florist, guests will leave with an evening full of wonderful memories and will take with them a handcrafted bouquet of flowers and a Field to Vase tote full of floral treasures.
American Grown Flowers, food and wine will take center stage on this stop along a dinner tour that The Wall Street Journal is calling a “Feast Among the Flora.” The evening will focus on celebrating the idea that the flowers at the center of the table should be as fresh, local and sustainable as the food on your plate.
