Savor the Flavors of Apple Hill at the Growers’ Farm to Fork Dinner
Local food, wine, cider and more move from the farm to the table in a beautiful outdoor setting
Camino, CA (July 19, 2021) – The bounty of the season will be showcased at the Apple Hill Growers Association’s Farm to Fork Dinner on Saturday, August 14. Tickets are almost sold out for an unforgettable evening on the farm, featuring a delicious wine and food paired meal featuring produce and wine from Apple Hill Grower Farms.
“This dinner is an opportunity to showcase the bountiful products from our Apple Hill Grower farms,” said Chris Delfino of Delfino Farms and President of the Apple Hill Growers Association. “We’re also thrilled to work with a local chef to feature such a variety of products, proving we’re not just about apples but also incredible year-round produce, baked goods and wine.”
The evening will begin with a cocktail hour with Grower hard cider, wine and passed appetizers, followed by a four-course seated dinner with spectacular views of Delfino Farms’ beautiful vineyards. The multi-course meal will be prepared by Placerville chef John Sanders of Old Town Grill with ingredients from local farms. The menu includes herb crusted pork tenderloin with black currant compote, grilled scallops with stone fruit jam and eggplant pinwheels with microgreens and chèvre.
Each course will be paired with Apple Hill wines from wineries such as Lava Cap Winery, Madroña Vineyards, and Boeger Winery, to name a few. The finale will be a throwback to how the Apple Hill Growers Association began – a dessert smorgasbord featuring the best of the area’s bakeshops.
Placerville musician Patrick Walsh will set the mood with live music. The singer-songwriter was raised in the foothills and often incorporates local history and experiences into his songs.
Apple Hill Growers Association is grateful for the support of its community partners, Raley’s is the dinner’s Premier Sponsor, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Raley’s Food for Families program. El Dorado Hills Party Rentals is the Event Sponsor.
The event is taking place at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 14 at Delfino Farms in Camino, CA. Tickets are $125 and are LIMITED! On sale now at https://applehill.com/event/farm-to-fork-dinner.
