Harvest Green Chef Fest
Harvest Green and local chefs are teaming up for a display of culinary creativity and farm-fresh food at the Richmond community’s inaugural Chef Fest noon to 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25.
The event, located at 602 Vineyard Hollow Court, will feature established and up-and-coming chefs preparing a variety of dishes using produce grown on the master-planned community’s Village Farm.
In addition to good food and opportunities to replicate the chefs’ efforts at home, attendees also will enjoy yard games, live music and farm tours. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Admission is free.
Attendees will be able to purchase tickets that can be used to buy small plates prepared by well-known chefs such as Adam Dorris of Presidio, Chris Zettlemoyer formerly of Boudreaux’s Cajun Kitchen and Adam Garcia formerly of Coltivare and The Pass and Provisions.
While the chefs are the event’s centerpiece, there will be other activities. Chefs will take turns hosting 10-minute demos, children can participate in an interactive cooking lesson and, if inspiration hits, festival participants will be able to shop for ingredients at the farmers market. Representatives from Messina Hof winery will be on-site discussing their wines. Plus, eventgoers will be able to purchase wine and beer from SpindleTap Brewery.
A portion of the proceeds from Chef Fest will benefit the East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. The non-profit, which assists Fort Bend residents in temporary financial crisis, will have three booths — one of which will allow children to help families in need. Children can bring a lunch item such as such as granola bars, crackers or pudding cups and decorate a sack lunch that will go to a local child.
