We are very excited for this weekend! Not only will we be at the Bellingham Highland Games and the Northwest WA Demo Derby, but on Sunday we’re heading to Gothberg Farms for a slow food movement event with Cafe Adrift.
There’s a fun farm dinner and tour planned for June 6, 2010, from 1pm-5pm. This will be a Texas style BBQ prepared by Nicole and Maggi from Cafe Adrift in Anacortes. They have a new catering “wagon” with BBQ attached. This event is in conjunction with our local Slow Food chapter (Skagit River Salish Sea) and part of each ticket sale will go to them.
So, here is a general plan for the afternoon:
1pm-3pm: Farm tours and beer and cheese tasting/pairing. Beers will be from Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham and cheeses will be from Gothberg Farms. Julia Wayne from Edible Seattle will be here to help us with a fun and interactive way to do this.
3pm-5pm: The Food
BBQ Brisket (from Island Grown Farmers Coop Bow WA)
Chicken (from Well Fed Farm Mt. Vernon WA birds being grown now just for us!)
Grilled Oysters (from Taylors Seafood Bow WA)
Potato Salad (local of course)
Cole Slaw (local of course)
Bread (from the Breadfarm Bow WA)
Delightful Dessert (made with Gothberg Farms chevre)
