New for the 2019 season, Taliesin Preservation is pleased to announce the Taste of Taliesin. This event is inspired by Wright’s Organic Architecture and draws from Wright’s vision that community, agriculture, and food are integrally connected with the land. Chefs, local producers, and the organic Taliesin farm, Fazenda Boa Terra come together to celebrate the bounty of the harvest season.
The seasonally infused menu will highlight the terroir of the Driftless Region and the agricultural and culinary community within. Guests will move through four stations, located by significant buildings on the Taliesin estate. Inspired by the landscape and the architecture, three stations will feature a savory small plate and beverage with the fourth featuring dessert and coffee. With short walks between each station, guests are given the opportunity to truly experience what has been called one of the most significant architectural anthologies in the world with buildings from nearly every decade of Wright’s career.
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
