WHO: Frank McClelland is the James Beard award winning Chef and Proprietor of L’Espalier. L’Espalier has been a perennial “best” of America’s restaurants for three decades, earning top accolades from Zagat, Forbes, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Wine Spectator and Conde Nast Traveler as well as nods in international media.
Chef McClelland is one of few Chefs in the country to reside on his own farm, Apple Street Farm. In one of the country’s most ambitious sustainable agriculture initiatives for the restaurant industry, Apple Street Farm is the primary source of organic harvests for L’Espalier and is a source for various other restaurants throughout the city of Boston. Apple Street Farm is located just north of Boston in Essex, MA and is Chef McClelland’s revitalization of a two-century pastoral 14-acre equestrian farm.
WHAT: To celebrate the freshest ingredients of fall, Chef Frank McClelland and his team will be hosting the Apple Street Farm Essex Harvest Feast on October 18th and 19th. Every month, Chef prepares a themed dinner showcasing the organic produce, poultry, and eggs from the fields. For the month of October, Chef has designed a five-course menu with wines pairings.
Upon arrival, guests are welcome to explore the beautiful grounds of Apple Street Farm while enjoying a seasonal cocktail and hors d’oeuvres prepared by the chefs of L’Espalier. They will then be seated outside (or under a tent in the case of inclement weather)
