A sumptuous feast of local fare will be prepared by Chef Lee Chizmar of Bolete with wine from Galen Glen and desert from Dolce Patisserie. Bolete has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Gourmet, the Philadelphia Inquirer and The Food Network. Chef Lee Chizmar will turn food fresh from the Seed Farms fields into a meal to remember.

Imagine drinking a glass of wine overlooking rolling farm fields, with the sun setting over two shining ponds while you taste luxurious Hors d'oeuvres prepared with food harvested only yesterday from these very fields. As you sit down to an enchanting dinner you will know you are supporting training for one of the most important jobs in the world--training for those men and women who produce our food.
