An Evening With FarmOn Foundation

Rachel Louchen reports from Rhinebeck. The FarmOn Foundation hosted an evening that included a book signing, cocktail reception and fine dining experience provided by some of the most acclaimed chefs in the Hudson Valley. On Sunday, March 1, the events began with a book signing at bluecashew Kitchen Pharmacy for Organic: Farmers and Chefs of the Hudson Valley by Francesco Mastalia which features stunning black and white photographs of over 100 local chefs including Sarah Lukasiewicz of The Red Devon and Fish & Game’s Jori Jayne Emde. A cocktail reception across the street at Terrapin Restaurant lead into the the farm-to-table dinner prepared by Terrapin chef Josh Kroner and Gianni Scappin of Market Street, among others. FarmOn Executive Director Tessa Edick happily noted that the event oversold, with 110 tickets being sold for the 100-seat dinner. All proceeds benefit the foundation’s work with youth, including nutrition education in conjunction with local farms and chefs and the support of local agriculture.
