Later this month, Kitchen West Restaurant at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch and The Simple Farm is launching the Farm to Kitchen West Supper Series. Guests of the series will experience farm couture with a behind-the-scenes tour with The Simple Farm Owners (and award-winning caramel makers) Lylah and Michael Ledner along with a meet-and-greet with the five resident Nubian dairy goats.
Diners are then invited to choose a seat at a long wooden table–accented with with rustic chairs and a burlap table runner, mismatched wine glasses, and flowers picked from the garden–while Kitchen West’s Executive Chef Rick Dupere (pictured) prepares the farm-to-kitchen feast. Sitting in the farm’s garden space under the starlit sky, diners savor an intimate family-style dinner with ingredients picked straight from the farm while Chef, Lylah and Michael share their passion for local, organic farm produce and quality cooking.
The monthly three-course dinner is limited to 16 people to encourage communal dining with the farmers and Chef. The monthly dinners take place on Friday evenings and begin at 6 p.m. The cost for dinner and wine is $75 per person (does not include tax or gratuity). For more information or to book your reservation, call 480.596.7522.
