20 Mile Meal
Last Sunday, I attended the 3rd Annual 20 Mile Meal at Turkey Hill farm in Cape Elizabeth. The event was put on by Cultivating Community, a non-profit that does a lot of great things with kids, refugees, and farming. This event showcased local chefs preparing dishes using ingredients grown, harvested, or landed within 20 miles of the farm. Most of the produce came from Turkey Hill farm.
After my plate got pretty full, I kinda lost track of who served what... I know the Mexican corn was from El Rayo and was the highlight of the meal. The little cup of vegetable stew was from Local Sprouts, the orange mussel and gnocci dish was made by Vignola, and the plate of mussels below was caught by Ocean Approved.
The dessert seen here hanging out with the mussels was a pumpkin pie tart with basil whipped cream and was prepared (and served) by the Cultivating Community Culinary Crew.
I had a great time at this event and even decided that it was worth missing the Ravens/Pats game for.
