Roycroft dinner to showcase work of Hubbard great-grandson, Chef Edward Forster

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

Chef Edward Forster's latest pop-up dinner has a slightly more stately setting. Instead of curbside service from a taco truck, the former Mike A's executive chef is planning a meal at the Roycroft Inn.

The Nov. 18 dinner will feature produce from Arden Farm, an organic operation run by Daniel Roelofs, great-grandson of Elbert Hubbard. Roelofs will serve as host of the event, which will also feature produce from other local organic farms, a press release said.

The meal will start with an amuse bouche, hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and warm beverages. 

The working menu:

*Slow roasted pork belly with kimchee and smoked apples

*Roasted goat with harissa, cocoa, and carrots

*A montage of Arden Farm vegetables with whey, seeds, and herbs

*Onsen egg on heirloom potato with oyster mushroom, truffled mie de pain

*Roasted Chantenay carrot with spruce oil and orange bitters

The event starts at 6 p.m. in the Roycroft, 40 S. Grove St., East Aurora, with an exhibit of Sarah Roelof's paintings. Dinner starts at 6:45 p.m. Tickets are $147, and limited to 80 seats.  Call Arden Farm at 716-341-1268 or email
