Host Farmers: Christine Bergmark & Brett Grohsgal, Even' Star Organic Farm, Lexington Park, MD (Washington DC Area)
Guest Chef: Michael Rafidi, Washington, DC
We hear it looks like Ireland here, even in the middle of winter. Even’ Star is a very diverse farm, delivering over 140 types of vegetables, herbs and flowers year-round to CSA members and their stand at the Chevy Chase and Lexington Park farmers markets. Farmer Brett is a former chef, so he gets it. Christine, with advanced degrees in plant physiology and ecology, has been involved in southern Maryland agriculture for 15 years and helped shepherd the fields from smoking crops (tobacco) to eating and drinking crops (good food and wine). These two will teach us a lot. Guest chef Michael Rafidi, who most recently headed up the Burgundian-inspired kitchen at Michael Mina’s RN74 in San Francisco, will school us on how to savor all that goodness.
