Eating in the Field

Santa Ynez Valley Jewish Community Hosts Seed, Sow, Supper on September 12

You can’t get much fresher than having a meal amid the very fields from which the food was sourced. The Santa Ynez Valley Jewish Community understands that notion so well that it is kicking off what it hopes will become an annual series called Seed, Sow, Supper on Saturday, September 12, from 4-8 p.m. This inaugural edition will take place on the farm of Farmers Market fixture Shu Takikawa, a longtime sustainable growing supporter. His wonderful produce will be turned into a gourmet meal by Chef Nat Ely of Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe that will also feature all-natural beef raised at Rancho Sisquoc. “I’m so excited to be part of this type of event. For any chef, getting the opportunity to really get creative is a big thrill, and we’ll be doing it al fresco right out in the field!” Ely said. “It’s going to be unlike anything that’s ever been done before in the valley.” Of course, the multi-course feast will be matched with the valley’s terrific wines, too, making this event a Santa Ynez Valley delight. Seating is limited; tickets are $125 per person. See or call (888) 336-3358.
