Winter Harvest Dinner - March 28
SAVE THE DATE! Saturday, March 28th. It’s that time of year to celebrate the aromatic and hearty local food available during the winter months – fresh from winter growing facilities, fall crops cold stored and tasting fresh from the field or “put up” last summer/fall just for this dinner. The dinner is a fundraising event for the market, with funds raised supporting the Litchfield Hills Farm-Fresh Market programs in our community. Chef Samantha Tilley of Mockingbird Kitchen and Bar is our resident Executive Chef and always presents a delicious and memorable meal paired with wine and beer. Barbara Mojon-Gugnoni, resident pastry chef, will create a delectable dessert that is hard to forget. Menu planning is underway. Chef Sam promises some of her signature oysters as one of the hors d’oeuvres offerings.

On a very sad note, the market has lost one of it's wonderful vendors. Amanda Chase, known as the dahlia lady, passed away on January 10th. She will be sorely missed. We cannot imagine the market without her! For all of you who have asked, here is an address to send a card.to her family. 34 Furnace Brook Rd, Cornwall, CT 06753.
See you at the market this Saturday, January 18, at the Litchfield Community Center.
Here are the things of note, different than usual, this week.
Anna's column is titled The Subject is Soup - a fitting topic for our chilly winter days. We learned that soup is the second oldest cooking method and that is believed to be responsible for the invention of restaurants. Always interesting reading from Anna. Click here to read Anna's article.
