Spring Harvest Farm-to-Table Dinner
Saturday, May 22, 2021
hosted by Montesino Ranch, Wimberley, Texas
Join the Taste of Wimberley for a decadent evening and a one-of-a-kind experience at the beautiful Montesino Ranch + Farm in Wimberley, Texas, for an organic and locally-sourced "Farm to Table" Dinner. Gather with old friends and make new in an intimate, candlelit setting under the stars. Watch local Chef Stefani Immel prepare an inspired meal in the Live Oak Kitchen from that morning's farm harvest along with locally-sourced grass fed beef tenderloin and cheeses with a selection of breads baked with locally-milled ancient grains.
4:30 p.m. — Gate opens at Montesino Ranch (parking in the barn parking lot)
4:30 - 6:15 — Gather in the barn for charcuterie boards including pickled items and jams from Vicki's Kitchen (Wimberley), fresh picked Montesino Farm vegetables (Wimberley), CKC Farms (Fischer) goat cheeses — herbed, jalapeño, peach/chipotle, dry sausages from Granzin's Market (New Braunfels), hummus from Abby Jane Bakery (Dripping Springs) + more!
Enjoy complimentary basil-cucumber lemonade + Dripping Springs Vodka, and mint juleps made with Treaty Oak Day Drinker Bourbon (Dripping Springs). Stroll just a short distance from the barn to see where the growing magic happens. Josh Newton, Farm Extraordinaire, will be milling about to answer questions.
6:15 p.m. — Mosey from the barn area to the Live Oak Kitchen — just a short walk from the barn — where dinner will be served under the oak trees and stars. (in case of inclement weather, the meal will be served inside the barn)
6:30 - 8:00 p.m. — Dinner is served.
8:00 - 9:00 p.m. — Gather around the fire pit back at the barn where each guest will receive a gourmet S'mores packet to enjoy around the bonfire or to take home.
