It has become a Prairie Fruits Farm tradition to kick off the dinner season with a spring lamb from Caveny Farm in Monticello. Paired with the early season offerings of vegetables and fruits, this meal orchestrates the freshest ingredients into a symphony of gustatory delights.
Guest Chef Ann Swanson will showcase her culinary talents for this multi-course feast. Chef Swanson, a central Illinois native, began her culinary career while in high school in Monticello. She cut her culinary chops in South Carolina at “Garibaldi’s,” an upscale Italian restaurant and McCrady’s, Sean Brock’s (of PBS Series “Mind of a Chef” fame) southern style farm-to-table restaurant in Charleston SC. Ann returned to central IL in 2010, and helped Bacaro implement their “Market Mondays” farmers’ market inspired dinners. She currently manages the Hendrick House Farm and keeps her culinary skills honed with guest chef appearances. $100/person, wine, beer & cocktails not included in price.
