Cuisine Culture: Dinner in the Vineyard
Do you like eating fresh, organic food? Do you enjoy handmade pottery and tableware? Do you try to support local buisnesses and food suppliers?
If you answered “yes” to all or any of these questions, or if you are curious and want to learn more about living a sustainable lifestyle and being more “local”, then Cuisine Culture: Dinner in the Vineyard is just right for you!
Cuisine Culture is a supreme culinary dining event to celebrate the bounty of the Finger Lakes Region through a local culinary experience using all local foods served on handmade pottery. Chefs, farmers, and artisans are collaborating to bring you an unforgettable dining experience where friends will be made and conversations will spark. Experience the pleasure of dining locally and sustainably!
The evening will begin with a winery/farm tour led by the vintners, Tim and Diane Moore, who will talk about their operations and wine making philosophies at Inspire Moore Winery. Artisans and farmers will have informational material and samples displayed on site to help inform you about their products and what they have to offer. Then the artists will talk about how they designed the dinnerware and the work that went into the production of the sets. All of this is in hopes to connect people to their food sources and object makers to provide more options for a sustainable and local life style.
Then…..the seating. We have designed the dinner experience to provide plenty of opportunity to meet new people, including the farmers and artists, who will all be sitting with you at one long banquet table. The table will be set up right in the vineyard (a tent overhead if needed). We will settle into the five course meal prepared by Roots Cafe’s chefs Melissa Neubauer and Michelle Halloran and paired with wines from Imagine Moore Winery. We will be enjoying a “40- mile menu” this evening, in other words, all foods and products come from a distance of 40 miles or less from the very table you are sitting at!
After dinner, take something home with you! All of the pottery that was used for the dinner service and settings is available for purchase and can be paid for on the spot, wrapped and delivered to your car. This is a great way to take home a piece of the night, something that can be used over and over- a vehicle to deliver fresh local food to your tummy!
After dinner put on your dancing shoes! Myre and Miguire will take us from dinner to dancing! They will be followed by another band, TBA.
