‘By Hand’ Dinner, Prepared by Sarah Owens

December 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join James Beard award-winning cookbook author Sarah Owens for the next in her special series of dinners titled By Hand. Sarah has created these much-sought-after dinners all over the country and we are fortunate indeed to have her come to Hillsdale. This dinner will celebrate the craft and spirit of small food producers in the Hudson Valley. Sarah will prepare a sumptuous meal starting with appetizers and botanical cocktails based on locally foraged ingredients.

The menu will be built around fresh local lamb with side dishes perfectly suited to the season, all paired with the ideal wine. This special autumn-turning-to-winter dinner will be held in our candle-lit private upstairs dining room and kitchen, and is limited to just 18 people. Bring a friend and be prepared for a convivial evening of great food served family style. Each dish will be lovingly prepared for you by this award-winning chef.

Note: Because Sarah will be selecting the ingredients for side dishes and dessert close to the date, we cannot decipher the precise menu yet. You can trust that only the most perfect local ingredients in that moment will be selected and prepared. Sarah’s By Hand dinners are quite the occasion and we are sure you’ll find it to be a delicious and memorable evening!
