Guests were greeted by their hosts, Isabelle Farm, the Growe Foundation and Jax Fish House– and offered a variety of fresh oysters and a specially selected aperitif. The menu for this intimate five-course dinner featured freshly picked organic produce from Isablle Farm and was prepared on-site by five of Jax Fish House’s most talented chefs. The artisanal wine, provided by the Hess Collection, was selected to compliment the menu and came from producers that emphasize organic or biodynamic production. The evening was an incredibly memorable culinary experience, as guests were seated at a community table, overlooking the farm and Lake Waneka.
I’ve been volunteering my time with the Growe Foundation for two years now and plan to continue. Please visit their website to learn more about this incredible program and how you can get involved!
