Steve Fields and Sims Brannon, co-leaders of Slow Food Ojai/Ventura, have shared news of an upcoming event with us. Last year’s tour of the Churchill-Brenneis orchards and its companion citrus lunch was a tremendous success, so we’re pleased to alert Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to another event that will showcase some of the fine produce from our neighboring convivium:
Sidecar Restaurant will present a special dinner featuring citrus and avocados from Ojai’s Churchill-Brenneis Orchard:
When: Wednesday, March 19, 2008 beginning at 6:30pm
Where: The Sidecar Restaurant, 3029 East Main Street, Ventura, California
Cost: $55 per person; $75 per person with wine pairings
Chef Tim Kilcoyne will create a four-course menu based on Jim and Lisa’s tangerines, oro blancos, and several varieties of avocados.
To secure your reservation, call the Sidecar Restaurant at 815.653.7433 or visit their website.
P.S. If you can’t make this dinner, The Sidecar Restaurant will be doing monthly dinners with local farmers.
