Sold Out Feast of the Fields 2017
A record number of Saratoga PLAN supporters joined in the 2017 celebration of farm fresh bounty at the 12th Annual Feast of the Fields, held September 21 at Saratoga National Golf Club. As always, PLAN volunteers collected fresh farm products that were prepared by local chefs, accompanied by delicious wine, spirits, beer, baked goods, fresh juices, and other delicious local products. Dishes for the tasting included everything from Fried Maple Bacon Duck Rillettes, to Red Wine Braised Short Ribs, to Butternut Squash and Sweet Onion Lasagna. Desserts included Apple Cheesecake Mousse Parfait and Spiced Maple Pecan Cupcakes with Vanilla Butter Cream. Needless to say, nobody went home hungry.
The delicious local food could all be washed down with area beverages ranging from Bowman Orchards Apple Cider and Hard Cider from Saratoga Apple, to beers from Artisinal Brew Works and Common Roots Brewing Company, to some of the harder stuff from Saratoga Courage Distillery and Upstate Distilling. There were wines from Fossil Stone and Victory View Vineyards.
Silent auction items filled the big tent, where guests could also watch a live painting demonstration by artist Elisa Sheehan. Many guests went home with prized items like a leather flight jacket, wine baskets, artwork, and experiences such as tour tickets on the Hoppy Trails Brew Bus. And everyone was entertained by the sounds of Hot Club of Saratoga.
Everyone had a great time–see for yourself in our Facebook album!
