Red Sauce Hospitality is back with its popular Harvest Feast on April 27. After a brief hiatus, the smorgasbord at Zen Organic Farm returns as big as ever. That means a massive spread of wholesome, home-cooked and organic food prepared by some of the group’s top chefs, as well as farm tours, live music and fun and games for kids. Not to mention free-flow beer, wine, cocktails and soft drinks.
The feast gets underway at noon, when everyone is invited to dig into a raw bar featuring oysters, Littleneck clams, snow crab legs and more. Italian-American chef Vinny Lauria – a champion of local produce – will also showcase some of his homemade cheeses, including his mozzarella, smoked scamorza and burratini. Those should all go well with heirloom tomatoes picked fresh from the farm as well as the range of wood-fired pizzas the chefs will be making during the feast.
Beyond fresh seafood, cheese and pizza, the chefs will be serving a range of homemade cured meats, roasted veggies plucked from the farm and – the showstopper – the porchetta. The whole hog will be roasted for 15 hours on site and offered up with condiments made from the farm’s produce, like olive and oregano jam, pickled chillies and the spicy giardiniera served at Frank’s in Central.
The Harvest Feast isn’t just a day of hedonistic eating, though. It’s an opportunity to support local producers and gain a deeper appreciation for your food, from farm to table. The food is served family-style, letting you try everything at your leisure, and the live music and booths give it a farmer’s market vibe. Along with farm tours, this layout helps everyone experience a closer connection with the food, produce and creators. The best part is most of the goods are organic and grown in the New Territories.
The event is limited to 400 people and runs from 12pm until 7pm. Tickets cost $1,280 for guests aged 13 and older, and they’re absolutely free for kids 12 and under. That price includes all food, drinks, entertainment and round-trip coach transfers.
