怀俄明州着陆器.–Central Wyoming College presents a special farm-to-table “着陆器 Roots: Your Table for Local Food and Story” dinner, 周六, 9月9日, 4p.m. 直到日落 at the Alpine Science Institute in 着陆器.

The farm-to-table dinner features 主厨Colin Hemens and bar services by the Blushing Burrow. There will be live music from local musicians String Theory. After dinner, there will be storytelling with Houlihan Narratives. The event includes guided tours of the farm and heirloom orchard with Central Wyoming College’s farm students along with Douglas Nelson, Farm Manager; and Ethan Page, 教师 of Local Food and Agriculture.

主厨Colin Hemens, former executive chef at 乐天堂app’s Snake River Grill, began cooking farmto-table foods in Portland in the early 2000s. His 23 years working in restaurants from San Francisco to Denver to Glacier National Park provided him with diverse culinary experiences.

No matter the style of cuisine, for Hemens it is most important to cook with quality ingredients and know where they are grown and raised. He favors local foods because they are fresher, without the social and environmental impact of global shipping. Cooking with locally grown foods inspires Hemens to further his culinary creativity. CWC’s farm’s summer vegetables, as well as meats and local foods from other 着陆器 farmers and ranchers, 会在他的菜单上闪耀吗.

“I’m happy to be part of this special evening as I want to support local food and connect the community with their farmers and ranchers,Hemens说。.

Central Wyoming College Instructor of Agriculture and Meat Science Amanda Winchester, Meat Manager Richard Anderson and Meat Sciences students will process the lamb meat served at the farm-to-table dinner. The Churro-Navajo lamb was raised by Karen Mott and Nan Slingerland of Spear S Ranch in Red Canyon.

“The Navajo-Churro is the oldest sheep in the Americas and known for its special flavor which is so mild and lovely,南·斯林格兰说. Chef Hemens practices the art of whole animal cooking, and will utilize all the Spear S lamb harvested for the farm-to-table dinner.

CWC Instructor and Program Director of Culinary Arts & Hotel and Restaurant Management Amy Madera, Chef Rachel Lapresta and Central Wyoming College Culinary students will work with Chef Hemens as his sous chefs. The special farm to-table dinner will be served in the heirloom orchard from Central Wyoming College’s new mobile kitchen.

The farm-to-table experience includes a first course salad with tomatoes and cucumbers, herbedcultured buttered bread; and Mediterranean offerings with eggplant, 南瓜, 和辣椒. While all of the dinner food will be Wyoming grown, even more special is that most of it will be sourced from the 着陆器 Valley from lamb and beef ranchers, cow and goat dairy farmers, 家禽饲养者, 养蜂人, 蔬菜种植者.

The 着陆器 Roots farm-to-table dinner is a fundraiser for Central Wyoming College’s Beginning Farmer Training Program. Guests will learn about the people that grow 着陆器’s food, and leave firmly rooted.
