Parallel Post is now taking reservations for the second part of their farm-to-table dining series being held on Sunday, August 9th from 3-7pm at Gilbertie’s Herb Garden in Easton.
James Beard-nominated chef Dean James Max, Executive Chef Chris Molyneux, and Chef de Cuisine Erik Waybright have planned an experience “inspired by the season” and fresh offerings by Gilbertie’s which will invite patrons “to embrace their adventurous sides.” You can also expect Parallel Post to utilize locally sourced ingredients such as seafood from Norm Bloom & Son in Norwalk and meats from Ox Hollow Farm in Roxbury.
“As part of this year’s series, Parallel Post is thrilled to continue their partnership with authors Tracey Medeiros and Christy Colasurdo, who will be available for a meet and greet and book signing, to honor their recently released national cookbook, The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook. Featuring Parallel Post and a recipe by Chef Dean James Max, The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook is much more than a regional cookbook packed with 150 recipes from the area’s top chefs and local farmers.”
“For $110 per person (including tax and gratuity), this large-scale reception-style backdrop will feature various bars offering cocktails sponsored by locally-renowned Fishers Island Lemonade; brews by DuVig Brewing Company; and wine pairings and signature craft cocktails presented by resident mixologist Greg Genias aka “BootlegGreg.” Attendees can sample from numerous chef stations serving various small bites and dinner entrees ripe with the region’s finest local seasonal ingredients; enjoy an all-you-can-indulge dessert bar. For couples seeking an exclusive dinner package including the dinner and one personally autographed copy of The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook, the ticket will be priced $200 per couple (including tax and gratuity).”
