Showcasing the best from Lanark County’s
farmers and chefs…set to music
Saturday, August 23rd, 5:30 to 10 PM

at the historic barns of EcoTay, 942 Upper Scotch Line
(ten minutes west of Perth, Ont.)

Tickets will be sold in advance at $100 per person with a $70 tax receipt. Tickets available from Tickets Please, (www.ticketsplease.ca), 39 Foster St., Perth, (613) 485- 6434. Alcohol sold separately. All proceeds from the event will go to support The Table Community Food Centre’s innovative programming

If you have attended the gala before, you know what a magical evening it is. The 2014 event will be a Moveable Feast where guests will circulate around the site from one delectable dish to another, all the while being entertained by summer music. Dress is country elegant.

Like previous galas, it will focus on Lanark County flavours. There will be ten+ chef’s stations, each in a different area of the lovely, historic EcoTay site. Judy Dempsey, chef at The Table CommunityFood Centre, will once again command a prominent food station. Andrew Chatham, who has just opened The Field House on Herriott Street, will be back and Kyle Woods from The Masonry. John McDougall has offered to prepare gourmet pizzas in his wood oven. Ludwig Ratzinger will again present chocolate delicacies. Adding new zing to the menu will be Tamara Woods of the beloved Sunflower Bakery; Scott Miller from Temple’s +Taste; Forager Chef, Matthew Brearley, renowned for his restaurant, Castlegarth; Dominic Paul who has just opened a chic new diner in Ottawa, Wilf and Ada’s, to rave reviews; and Derek McGregor of Kingston’s upscale bistro, Le Chien Noir. Coutts Coffee will be serving their special coffee blend, "The Table". We will be offering beer brewed at Perth Brewing Company and fine wines, matched to each chef's dish.

Join us and bring along your friends and family.
