Locavores will delight in tonight's "strolling supper" event which celebrates all things Coastside: local chefs cooking local produce to benefit the HEAL (Health, Environment, Agriculture and Learning) Project, an experiential learning program that teaches children how to be healthy, take care of the environment, and learn how to grow their own food ( houses the HEAL garden).
Held at Cypress Meadows in Moss Beach, the "'Spring Ahead' To A Sustainable Future" event will feature the cooking of five chefs who will each prepare dishes using locally produced ingredients:
- Jenn Papa, of Half Moon Bay's 3Bee Baking Company will prepare desserts with eggs from Ben's Coastside Eggs, Eda's Meyer Lemons, and Harley Farms dairy products.
- Kevin Koeble (aka The Rogue Chef) is cooking up side dishes from Jacobs Farm.
- Lewis Rossman, Executive Chef and Partner at Half Moon Bay , is combining produce from Giusti Farms and the catch of Half Moon Bay's fishermen for a savory meal.
- Richard Gras of the 's restaurant is making an entree with the produce of Daylight Farms and Pescadero's Left Coast Grassfed beef.
- Amy Fothergill (aka The Family Chef and Half Moon Bay Patch ) will show how to make a seasonal risotto using vegetables grown by the Farm Fatales and HEAL students themselves.
