I was sitting on the plane waiting for them to close the doors in Miami on my way back from Cuba when I got this email from my friend Heather: “My friend Katie just got engaged and I asked her what her first thought is in planning her big day and she told me farm to table. She wants to have it at this local farm in Connecticut where they host farm to table dinners with top chefs in the area. I thought she was going to say a color!”
Needless to say I was thrilled with this suggestion! Thanks Heather and Katie!
For those of you who don’t know what farm to table is…
It’s definitely for the foodies among us, and a wedding centered around it is an amazing idea. Farm to table cuts out the middle man and allows restaurants (and farms!) to create and serve wonderful dishes using locally grown and organic produce and meats. There are lots of restaurants around the United States that label themselves ‘farm to table’ and there is a growing movement among consumers for healthier, locally grown foods that also support local farmers and focus on sustainability. Plus, if you’ve ever tried a locally grown organic tomato, you’ll never go back :-D.
I can’t wait to see the pictures from Katie’s farm to table wedding!
