Farm to table dinners at King Family Farm.

As I mentioned last week, I had the opportunity to attend a farm-to-table dinner at King Family Farm in Bradenton with my coworker Hannah, and it was amazing. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to eat seasonally and locally and know where your food comes from, so the opportunity to have a farm-fresh dinner (with produce literally picked from the fields in front of me) that also happened to be so charming I had to pinch myself was totally awesome.

The evening featured a three-course meal under the stars (plus plenty of extras), a tour of the farm (with samples of the produce) and lots of laughter and good conversation. If you're local and you haven't already, you've got to attend one of these dinners—I promise you'll come away with a new appreciation for Sarasota and all it has to offer. And if you've already gone, well then, like me, you're probably dreaming up excuses to go back. 

More info about the dinners here, and here's a little write-up I did about our experience for work, in which you can also check out a sample menu. (For the record, I'm still dreaming about that biscuit.)
