Local Farmers Dinner

Almost Sold Out
The Local Farmers Dinner at Brooks pays tribute to some of our favorite farmers and cheesemakers. Chef Abby’s feast will highlight purveyors Dundee Hills Food Forest, Briar Rose Creamery, and Soggy Bottom Farm Pork, complemented by produce from our own Biodynamic garden. Brooks wines will accompany the multi-course dinner, thoughtfully paired by Chef Abby and Winemaker Chris Williams

2015 Orchard Fold Riesling

Very bright floral nose, with lemon and lime blossom, mango, papaya and tropical notes. Fresh basil and thyme high notes.
Delicious ripe fruit, baked apple and pear, white peach, lemon pie, key lime, kaffir lime, blood orange and a whole basket of citrus. The wine is medium bodied, ripe but not quite sweet and highly aromatic of floral notes and herbs. Definitely getting the fresh cut basil, thyme and parsley and the wine finishes with gobs of fruit and beautiful, refreshing medium plus acid.
I really love this wine and how in balance it shows. This would be an amazing started with a fresh citrus segment salad with feta cheese. Try it with Heirloom tomatoes and burrata or halibut, avocado and squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese. Yum.

Chef Abby's July Pairing

Sri Lankan Sambal Shrimp Salad with Green Beans, Jicama, Honeydew, and Peaches 

For the pairing, I was driven to the warm, robust food of South Asia and Sri Lanka. This region has influence from Indonesia and southern India. I wanted to tie in one of my favorite condiments, Sambal, with the seasonal July ingredients available in the Pacific Northwest. Pair with 2015 Orchard Fold Riesling.
