We are very fortunate in our area to have a strong Farm to Table movement. We are also very lucky to have the Culinary Vegetable Institute in our backyard (well, 45 minutes away). They host dinners a few times a year to share their seasonal vegetables and we finally signed up for one. We were treated to several small courses throughout the evening with an interesting story about each course. We met Farmer Lee Jones (yes, he was in his trademark bibs!), were encouraged to wander around the kitchen (which we did) and dined on inventive appetizers and desserts. My only regret is that it was so dark outside, preventing us from wandering around and viewing the outside grounds.
