Authentic Farm to Farm-Table!
Trent Shank of Bear & Star and Fess Parker Farm
Take a day trip into the valley, and experience true Farm to Table luncheon, limited to 10 guests with Chef (and Farmer) Trent Shank.
Located at the Fess Parker farm (50 min from the city, in the midst of wine country!), the morning will start with canapés, a refreshment, and farm tour which includes chickens, berry patches, and a bounty of incredible summer crops. Easy walking for everyone – just wear comfy shoes!
Following the tour will be a seated 3 course lunch in an outdoor, shaded location within the farm, featuring all the seasonal harvest…from herbs, to heirloom vegetables, to farm fresh eggs, and of course wine pairings.
The charismatic and warm-hearted Chef Trent will share the techniques, inspiration, and stories behind his dishes.
All of you home cooks will be surely inspired by Chef Trent’s produce and lunch! Available for purchase will be farm fresh eggs, lettuces, tomatoes and more! (You never know what crops will be ready for harvest!) So take a home a farm box full of the day’s harvest for your own authentic farm-to-table creations.
Transportation is not provided. Menu TBA.
A native of Texas, Chef Trent attended the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, and eventually moved to California for the beautiful weather and vast growing season, and eventually became the Executive Chef of The Bear and Star Restaurant. Ready for a break from the kitchen and an itch to spend more time in the soil, he was given an opportunity to operate the former Bear and Star Farm as The Farm at Fess Parker Home ranch.
