Apple Street Farm Hosts a Magical Evening for Summer Dinner Series

WHAT:                 Each month throughout the summer, Chef Frank McClelland hosts a themed dinner at his home on Apple Street Farm to showcase the farm’s seasonal and organic produce, protein and eggs – and the month of July is no exception. The Midsummers Night’s Dream themed dinner will transport guests to the magical fields of Shakespeare’s most beloved play, while enjoying the fare straight from the fields around under the moonlight. 

Upon arrival, guests are encouraged to explore the beautiful grounds while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres prepared by the chefs of L’Espalier and Sel de  la Terre restaurants. Seated in the open air (or under a tent in the case of inclement weather), guests will enjoy a four-course meal with a trio of wine pairings.

The Midsummer Night’s Dream menu will feature dishes such as; ASF Salad: fresh dug potatoes, smoked wild salmon and caviar, local warm corn mousse and wild sweet orange, dill and buttermilk dressing; Grilled Black Bass and Fried Essex Clams: bean, roasted onions and pickled cucumber salad, melon and anise hyssop broth; Spit-roasted Young Lamb: summer squash gratin and grilled cepes, black olive and rosemary jus.
