Locally Grown Dinner Series: End of Season Thanks

Last night friends and supporters of Sustainable Nantucket gathered at American Seasons to give thanks and celebrate an evening of beautiful food at the final Locally Grown Dinner of the 2011 Series.

Chef Michael LaScola artfully paired treats such as Nantucket bay scallops from Nantucket Fresh Catch and native pork belly from Faraway Farms with seasonal vegetables from our growers, while Orla LaScola and her team provided exceptional hospitality. Sustainable Nantucket would like to extend sincere gratitude to American Seasons, chef/owners Michael & Orla LaScola, Chef de Cuisine Derek Ronspies, Sous Chef Andrew Howard, Pastry Chef Natasha Misanko and the entire American Seasons team for making this evening truly special.

We would also like to thank our 2011 Locally Grown Benefit Dinner Series sponsors Bartlett’s Farm, B.E. Byrne, and Build Positive, as well as the following businesses for their generous in-kind contributions: Annye’s Whole Foods, Bartlett’s Farm, Cisco Brewery, Far Away Farms, Hummock Pond Farm, Moors End Farm, Nantucket Blooms, Nantucket Fresh Catch, Nantucket Mushrooms, and Pumpkin Pond Farm. Thanks to Straight Wharf Restaurant and the Club Car for hosting our September and October dinners. Lastly, thanks to all who purchased tickets and joined us for our 2011 Fall Locally Grown Dinner Series, we appreciate your support!
