Event description

Description

Join us for the launch of a new event series here at Local Foods - our Sunday Supper Club Pop-Ups. Each month, we will partner with a notable local chef or supper club for a tasting menu featuring local, seasonal ingredients and their own signature dishes.

For June, we are pleased to partner with My Back Porch. Run by Genevieve Diesing, My Back Porch’s latest pop-up dinner, The Fermented Menu, will feature meat from a local farm that has a level of tenderness and umami typically found only from dry-aging, thanks to fermentation from koji, a fungus that is popular in Japan and was made famous by two Michelin-starred Dutch restaurant Noma. This multi-course menu will feature the season's best, local produce, and a variety of fermented, cured and confit foods. Join us to taste the difference that a little microbial action makes on food at its seasonal peak.

The Fermented Dinner Menu:

  • Seasonal vegetables (fresh and fermented) & a cheese platter with sourdough crostini
  • Strawberry gazpacho
  • Koji-fermented pork belly with fermented root vegetables and micro greens
  • Miso caramel ice cream in handmade sugar cones
