Santa Rosa supper to celebrate the harvest season

August 7, 2017 by  

A festive meal that celebrates the harvest while supporting young people who are interested in agriculture will soon be held in Santa Rosa, and the public has been invited to come out and enjoy the food, fun, and friendship.

The 4-H of Sonoma County and Slow Food Russian River will be coming together to host an event that will feature a reception, harvest-inspired dinner, turkey preview, and auction. Well-known local chef and culinary celebrity Daniel Kedan will be preparing the harvest-themed meal, and there will also be a discussion of Slow Food’s efforts to reintroduce heritage varieties of turkeys. These birds had once been raised in the USA, but had become in danger of extinction, and it will also be highlighting its work in encouraging consumers to go local when it comes to their food choices.

Two different ticket options are available. Individual tickets start at $150 each, and there will also be special VIP tables where the guests will have an opportunity to meet area cider makers and vintners. They will also receive take home décor free parking and other swag as a memento of the day. Festive banners for an occasion like this can be supplied by a local printer.

The Heritage Turkey Sunday Supper will be held on October 29 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Further details have been made available on the Slow Food Russian River website.
