In the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture and Taliesin’s rich farming history, Taliesin Preservation is pleased to announce the 2019 Summer Farm Dinner Series, featuring outstanding chefs and unique menus. We welcome you to join us for a dining experience celebrating the Taliesin landscape and highlighting the land-use legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright.
Each event includes a cocktail reception and three-course farm-to-table dinner with local beer and wine in a relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking environment. Dinner will be sourced from local producers and will feature farm-fresh seasonal vegetables from the Taliesin Farm. Taliesin Preservation will host two farm dinners in 2019, each dinner featuring the produce and harvest of the season
Featured Chef – Culinary Ladies Collective
We are a network of female/femme professional chefs, cooks, food and beverage producers, growers and artisans located throughout Wisconsin. We are committed to serving our communities through mentorship, volunteer outreach, education, fundraising and advocacy. We collaborate not only among ourselves, but with other community-minded organizations. Our contributions to these groups meet our goal of empowering womxn who have chosen to join the culinary community, or who are considering stepping onto the culinary path.
Through regular meetings, we nourish ourselves in body and spirit. We are a group who respects food, how it’s grown, where it’s raised and who is growing it. Most of all we are united: a collective of womxn which honors and values the culinary industry to which we have chosen to contribute our talent and grit.
The nature of this event is for our chefs to work closely with area farmers and producers. Guests should anticipate menus featuring meat, dairy and produce locally-sourced. With advance notice, our chefs may accommodate vegetarians who eat eggs and dairy, but we must respectfully decline substitutions for guests with strict dietary needs. If you have vegetarians in your party, please note in the COMMENTS section when booking.
