This post is so long overdue, but since it's a Thursday, I thought it might make for a good #ThrowbackThursday read.
Last fall, I was invited to a #TasteTheSeason dinner hosted by Sweetgreen to showcase their Autumnal seasonal menu. Over to Ward's Berry Farm we went, where we were introduced to farmer Jim Ward who took us on a hayride through the fields where many of the ingredients of Sweetgreen's menu are sourced. Jim brought in bunches of brussel sprouts and fresh ears of corn for us to try. I had never tried corn in that way, peeling back the husks and biting! It was refreshingly delicious!
Afterwards, we gathered together along with Sweetgreen founders Nicolas Jammet, Nathaniel Ru and Jonathan Neman over a locally sourced, family style supper. The stars of the show were of course, all of the locally sourced produce.
All in all, a wonderful evening celebrating community!
Thank you to Sweetgreen and Ward's Berry Farm for having us!
