Chefs are eager to learn more about where their food comes from and how it is grown. They wan to form relationships with farmers in order to get the most out of America’s bounty.
Chris Fischer is way ahead of the learning curve. He is a chef who farms and a farmer who cooks. He was raised on Martha’s Vineyard, where his family has been for the past 350 years.
If you want a great meal and a copy of his new cookbook, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook (Little, Brown 2015) written with Catherine Young, mark your calendar on Thursday, Oct. 15 and head over to Eataly for a Four Course Roman Feast.
This four-course meal will focus on Roman cuisine, inspired by Chris’s time at Babbo and the American Academy in Rome. Bringing ingredients raised in his fields on Martha’s Vineyard, Chris’s unique perspective on food marries 350 years of family history on the island with a modern approach to New England cooking.
Sounds like a great way to start a long weekend in New York City.
