100 mile dinner

last night, slow food's ed yowell brought over some long island wines.... a riesling and cabernet franc from paumanok vineyards, on the north fork....the riesling was good, but didn't have the little boost of acidity that distinguishes alsatian and german reislings. the cabernet franc was grassy, earthy, in the style of loire red wines....

slow food will be hosting a special dinner in march. every ingredient in the meal, as well as the beverages, will be sourced from within a 100 mile radius of new york city. it will be challenging, educational , and most of all, delicious! we will feature the products of local farms like paffenroth (vegetables), 3 corner field farms (cheese and lamb), violet hill farm (pork), as well as seafood from north fork fishermen like blue moon.
