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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
