Help: Eden Creek Farm is In Trouble, and You Can Help

It’s fall harvest time, which means one thing: Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin. Okay, that’s two things. Three if you count Chefs for Farmers. Four if you add this:

Chef Graham Dodds and guest Chef Tim Bevins will be cooking together at Central 214 on October 18 for a five-course benefit dinner to help out Eden Creek Farm.

Dodds says it’s been a rough year for Eden, one of Dodd’s suppliers, and they need a little assistance. All the proceeds go to the farm, says Tresa Hardt, Central 214’s supertalented spokesmodel.

The dinner will include wine pairings from Red Caboose and a craft cocktail reception with barkeeps Amber West of Central 214 and Jason Kosmas with The 86 Company spirits (Cana Brava & Aylesbury Duck) and a billion other ventures.

(I hear Kosmas is also writing a Greek-themed cocktail menu for the new Greek place opening in One Arts Plaza–originally to be called Meze but that’s not it anymore.)

Anyway, you can buy your $110 ticket here:

Thursday, October 18, 2012, Craft cocktail reception – 6pm; Dinner – 7pm
