Two Farm Dinners: One with Tony Mantuano @ Nichols Farm, the other with OneSixtyBlue @ Dietzler Farms

July 28, 2010 at 3:52 pm

If you’ve ever wanted to dine on a farm, there are two upcoming opportunities.

The first is August 7th, and involves the crew from OneSixtyBlue (not sure if MJ will participate). Board a bus at the restaurant, and travel up to Dietzler Farms in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Once there, you will tour the farm, and settle down for a five-course meal, including beer, wine pairings and . . . s’mores. $150 includes transportation, food, wine, tour, tax, and service. More information here.

The second is on August 15th, and involves a trip to Nichols Farm in Marengo, Illinois with Tony Mantuano of Top Chef Masters and Spiaggia fame, along with Spiaggia executive chef Sarah Grueneberg and sommelier Steven Alexander. In addition to a tour of the farm and a three-course lunch, the event includes bocce ball, croquet, and a “quickfire challenge.” More information here.
