In the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture and Taliesin’s rich farming history, Taliesin Preservation is pleased to announce the 2018 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 four-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 2018, each dinner featuring the produce and harvest of the season.
Announcing Chef Brett Olstadt!
After graduating from the Culinary Arts program at Madison College, Brett worked his way up in the Madison dining scene at storied venues, such as Harvest, Tornado Steak House, and Cololiquot, Brett has recently spent over ten years working as a Sushi and Executive Chef at Muramoto Hilldale and Muramoto Downtown and although classically trained in French cuisine and influenced by his work with Asian flavors, he is constantly striving to learn more about other cultures and their food. He believes in simple food, with the highest quality ingredients, done well.
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.
