(From press release) A few tickets remain for The Village Feast, a culinary event Sept. 28 that celebrates Farm to Table month in the Sacramento region.
The event, from 1 to 4 p.m., immediately follows the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, 401 C St., Davis. It is presented by Davis Farm to School and the Les Dames d’Escoffier International, Sacramento.
The Village Feast follows Le Grand Aïoli tradition of late-summer feasts of Provence, France, where aïoli — golden garlic-mayonnaise — unites people and food for a gastronomic celebration. Guests bring their own best dinnerware, flatware and cloth napkins, setting the scene for a long, leisurely meal under the shade of the sycamore trees. Wine glasses are provided.
All that is needed for a feast — olives and olive oil, vegetables, nuts, wines, lamb and more — is cultivated from local soil. The event includes a silent auction, where guests can bid on more culinary experiences, eclectic adventures and artwork.
The dinner raises funds for Davis Farm to School and Les Dames d’Escoffier — charitable, tax-exempt organizations working to support early and continued education around food and agriculture.
Tickets are $115, or $880 for a table of eight, which guarantees group seating. All other seating is first come, first served. Visit https://bit.ly/villagefeast2019 for tickets and menu details. Learn about Davis Farm to School at https://www.davisfarmtoschool.org/.
