About this Event
“The garden is an unending source of the miraculous, a joy that transforms our cooking and increases our pleasure at least a thousandfold.”
–Deborah Madison, from Vegetable Literacy
HGP’s first event of Sustain in Place: A series of at-home tastings, begins with a keynote video presentation from Deborah Madison. A pioneer in the farm to table movement, Deborah will share some secrets to the art of bringing out the best in farm-fresh produce, by leading us through making some of her favorite salad dressings.
Guests will also have the chance to come to the Farm to harvest your own salad greens, vegetables and herbs along with an accompanying gift bag featuring a bottle of wine and fresh, delicious, gourmet pasta from La Posta restaurant, in a reusable tote bag.
We are so pleased to once again “host” Deborah at an HGP event. Beyond her reputation as the groundbreaking chef from Greens in San Francisco, she is an acclaimed food writer and cooking teacher. She is an expert on vegetarian cooking and her gourmet repertoire showcases fresh garden produce. Her work also highlights Slow Food, local foods and farmers’ markets.
Deborah also has an exciting new memoir coming out soon. From her childhood in Big Ag Northern California to working in the kitchen of the then-new Chez Panisse, and from the birth of food TV to the age of green markets everywhere, An Onion in My Pocket is as much the story of the evolution of American foodways as it is the memoir of the woman at the forefront. It is a deeply personal look at the rise of vegetable-forward cooking, and a manifesto for how to eat well. The book will be released on November 10th and you can preorder your copy from HGP’s store by selecting it as an add-on to your ticket for this event.
Guests will be able to pick up bags from the HGP Farm anytime from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday October 24th. The presentation will be online and be premiered at 6:30pm at a link sent exclusively to attendees, however you will have the chance to watch the presentation at your convenience any time after that. If you prefer to have HGP trainees do the harvesting for you, just select the add-on in the ticket process.
