Farm Grown Dinner coming up at Niche

I've yet to visit Niche Restaurant in Geneva, Illinois, but I love reading about the unique events planned there when a press release shows up in my inbox. How cool is it that this restaurant has its own farm? Look what's in store later this month:


On Aug. 29, Niche hosts a farm dinner with all courses prepared
from the Bull Run Estate in Elburn, Ill

GENEVA, Ill. (Aug. 10, 2012) – Niche restaurant hosts one of their favorite summer events, a Farm Grown Dinner, on Aug. 29. Chef Serena Perdue will skillfully blend her traditional French training with her love of newly picked, seasonal products from local suppliers as well as from Niche’s own sustainable farm at The Bull Run Estate in Elburn, Ill. Chef Perdue will decide and create the four-course dinner on Aug. 29 based on the best crops available that day, which will be paired with wines selected by award winning sommelier Vince Balistreri. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m., and dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. The dinner costs $55 per person with $20 additional for wine pairings.
Guests can anticipate Chef Perdue’s menu to consist of a variety of farm grown produce including red, yellow and candy cane beets, spaghetti squash, zucchini, chard, kale, tomatoes, opal basil, sage, thyme, Italian parsley, chives, and more. Even the marigold flowers planned to be on the tables are grown from Niche’s own farm at The Bull Run Estate.
