Swank Farm-to-Table Event Serves Prime Cuts to Benefit Food For The Poor
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 10, 2015) – The final chance this season to dine al fresco and savor enticing farm-to-table meals prepared by renowned chefs is April 26 at Swank Specialty Produce, 14311 North Road, Loxahatchee, Fla. 33470. The Swank Table dinner theme is “Prime Cuts: A Beef Lover’s Paradise,” and proceeds will benefit Food For The Poor.
“We want to close the season with a bang. The meal is basically seven courses with dessert,” said Jodi Swank, who owns the farm with her husband Darrin. The dinner series began five years ago when Jodi hosted a dinner at the farm. Today the dinner series includes seven, sold-out events.
Guests will be greeted with a signature welcome drink prepared by Ryan Zemel, manager of Buccan, in Palm Beach, and sparkling nonalcoholic flavored water will be served by onli™ Beverages. Following bites by Whole Foods Market, guests will tour the Loxahatchee Groves’ hydroponic growing houses. Zucchini, squash, carrots and radishes will all be in season.
The family-style dinner in the Swank’s pole barn pays tribute to beef lovers, with chefs Chris Miracolo (S3, Fort Lauderdale); Isaac Cerny (Pistache French Bistro, West Palm Beach); Blake Malatesta (50 Ocean, Delray Beach); Jerry Valvano (Ganache 316, Boca Raton); Ryan Zemel (Buccan, Palm Beach); and sommelier Chris Birnie-Visscher. The event beverage sponsor Premier Beverage Company, LLC, and South Florida’s largest craft microbrewery, The Funky Buddha Brewery, will be on hand to serve wine and micro-crafts.
Entertainment will include a performance by The Andrew Morris Band, a country music band from South Florida.
Each ticket costs $155, and the dinner will be held rain or shine. To order tickets, please visit www.swankspecialtyproduce.com.
