A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

On a beautiful Friday evening a few weeks ago, I went down to the South Shore to spend an evening at Norwell Farms. They were hosting their 4th annual “Farm to Fork” event. There was a cocktail hour sponsored by 10th District Brewery of Abington, who was serving hyper local craft beer. Island Creek Oysters were being shucked by the Lavishly Dunn Catering team, who is based out of Hanover. As the night went on, guests were treated to dishes created by local chefs that were inspired by Norwell Farms vegetables.

The farm was decked out with beautiful blooms from Cross Street Flower Farm, which is run by Nikki Bartley and Cara Gilmartin. The pictures don’t even do these beautiful flowers justice. Love what you see? If you live in the area, you can sign up for a flower share and have your own bouquet every week!

The whole space was very Instagram worthy.

Guests made their way around the tent to sample all the chef’s creations that were inspired by vegetables from the farm. The Corner Stop Eatery in Cohasset and Abby Gray from Cooking with Abby in Norwell were in good company of the alumni chefs.

Returning favorite chefs included: Stephen Sherman of Scarlet Oak Tavern in Higham; Greg Jordan from the Quarry in Hingham and Brian Houlihan from the Tinker’s Son in Norwell.

Make sure to check out Chef Houlihan’s other restaurants, Bia Bistro in Cohasset, Trident Galley and Raw Bar in Higham and The Galley Kitchen and Bar in Scituate.

Guests danced into the late hours to music by The Common Good. I wish I had an event to plan, because they were such an awesome band. Check out my instagram to hear a sample. Desserts were provided by Sadie Mae’s Cupcakes of Hingham and The Foodsmith of Duxbury. If that weren’t enough, late night food was provided by BBQ superstars, Smokey Stax BBQ.

Make sure to mark your calendars for next years event – it is not to be missed!
