Fall Harvest Feast

Full Circle Farm is an 11 acre educational farm and orchard located in the heart of Silicon Valley. I read about their benefit Harvest Feast on Food Gal’s blog. She is a big fan of Michael Miller, executive chef of the Silicon Valley Capitol Club, who was in charge of the dinner featuring farm-fresh produce. Good food, a benefit for a good cause – I thought it was worth checking out.

The weather has suddenly become summer-like, so it was a lovely warm evening. With a full moon thrown in to set the mood for the experience. After champagne and cheeses in the park, we headed to the park to find a table. A few speeches later, it was time for dinner, served buffet style in a tent with twinkling lights.

Menu

Braised and Then Broiled Pork Ribs
Chicken with BBQ Cherry Sauce
Prawns with Citrus and Tarragon
Baby Tomato Salad with Basil, Balsamic and Feta 
Farm Fresh Veggies
Butternut Squash Potato Puree
Soft Polenta with Sage and Marscapone
Roasted Potatoes and Sweet Dumplings with Garlic
Jamie’s Almond Cake
Chocolate Truffles

It was too dark to see what we were eating, but it was all tasty. There was plenty of good food and no one went home hungry.

The farm stand is open Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. You can check their website for more information on their educational programs and opportunities to donate or volunteer.
