Join Common Threads for an evening at the local Hopewell Valley Vineyards as resident chef Nikiforos Vaimakis prepares some of his favorite Greek-inspired dishes sourcing local and fresh ingredients – many from Blue Moon Acres in Hopewell – and drawing inspiration from both his native country of Greece as well as the farm-to-table movement.
With every dish a different wine will be served and presented that best complements the flavors and palate. The dinner is an opportunity to appreciate local foods, artisan local wines, and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Meals are healthy, without filler ingredients or heavy cooking oils. Everything from scratch. The menu can be tailored for those with vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free diets. (Please communicate directly with the chef if this is the case.)
Eating together also strengthens local bonds and new friendships.
MENU FOR WEDNESDAY APRIL 5th 2017 – 6-9PM:
Artisan mushrooms cooked in wine-reduction sauce atop “polenta” of red lentils and pumpkin
Served w/ Rosso Della Valle
