Seasonal Special Happenings

Local Chef Brings Field to Fork

When: Sat., May 21 2011

Tonight's Earth to Table Dinner at the Culinary Vegetable Institute features signature flavors from Cleveland chef Jeff Jarrett, along with a true taste of springtime's bounty. Blossoming on the multi-course menu you'll find dishes like celery root soup, rosemary flatbreads, a salad of baby beets and goat-cheese feta, pancetta-wrapped pheasant, chocolate-braised short ribs, stuffed squash blossoms, and a medley of fresh beans. Among the sweet endings, the offerings sound even more delicious, with dishes like rosewater soup, blueberry cake, and something the chef calls "dirt, only sweeter." Jarrett, chef-owner of Palate in Strongsville, is passionate about seasonal goodness. "When we are aware of how to eat what's in season, we get the best of both worlds — flavor and health — for ourselves and our entire family." It all begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Culinary Vegetable Institute, 12304 State Rt. 13 in Milan. Reservations are $65; get yours at 419-499-7500. For more info, check out — Cicora
