Be one of only 50 guests to indulge in the inaugural evening of Ambler Farm’s new “Outstanding on the Farm” dinner series, a delicious adventure with a memorable sense of place launching this Saturday, June 4 from 6-10 p.m.
Ambler Farm plans to host one intimate dinner every year, each one featuring a different celebrated local chef and situated in a new location from amongst the farm’s 22-acre property — a field of sunflowers, the iconic Red Barn, a sunken garden, an awning of colorful trees — as the backdrop for the long table dinner that will change based on the season. This year, the first dinner will be held on the field in front of the Red Barn in collaboration with Baldanza at The Schoolhouse.
Every plate will tell a story using ingredients sourced from Ambler Farm and other local spots. Every sip will be designed to enhance the dish and this special moment around the table with old and new friends celebrating the inspiring connection between the land and one other.
In addition to Baldanza’s menu incorporating ingredients grown mere feet from the table where they’ll dine, guests will enjoy award-winning cheeses from Cato Corner Farm, fresh breads from 123Dough Breads and wine pairings from Edward James Winery in Stonington.
