Dinner at Soul Food Farm
This past week has been so amazing. I had the opportunity to tour four fantastic farms in the greater bay with some pretty wonderful women. We spent two days at a chicken farm in Vacaville, CA called Soul Food Farms. We helped lay hay for the chickens and weeded the their lavender field! The chickens are free range, happy happy chickens! It totally made me want to have chickens in my backyard. Anyways, one evening Alexis, the farm owner, invited our group over for dinner. We prepared the most amazing meal! Chicken confit rendered with duck fat, local sausages, fettuccine with rainbow chard and kale, bread, and salad with home made dressing. We got to help cook it all in her beautiful kitchen! It was absolutely gorgeous! Afterwards we bought some eggs for breakfast the next morning (Alice Waters at Chez Panisse is a fan!) and those we fantastic too! Everything just tasted so good after a hard day’s work on a farm!
