      An Autumn Evening in the Garden

      Join us for this Chef Extravaganza! An Autumn Evening in the Garden connects the region’s most talented chefs with local growers from all over the greater Capital District for an exciting evening of seasonally fresh foods and stimulating conversation amongst chefs, farmers and friends.

      The genius of this event resides in its alignment with the central mission of Capital District Community Gardens: to encourage people to grow and eat healthy local foods. The farmers contribute their meat, cheese, and produce. The chefs use these contributions to create their dishes. The diners sample outstanding cuisine drawn from the creative kitchens of the area's finest restaurants.
