Chef Adams has composed a menu that showcases the robust flavors of Cook Pigs Ranch's pasture-raised heritage pigs. Community Table is a unique experience that's part farm-to-table dinner and part education, where you will enjoy delicious local food and meet the rancher/farmer and chef who are responsible for the making of your meal.

About Community Table: Community Table is an on-going conversation about what a truly sustainable food system looks like. Our aim is to create a new consciousness about how food was grown, raised, caught, and how these decisions affect the health of our communities and our environment.

The Community Table dinner series will follow the cycle of seasons, with two dinners per season, each with a different chef and a different theme. The connecting thread across all the dinners is a thoughtful exploration of important issues affecting our food today, such as drought, biodiversity, livestock, soil, ocean health, and food mileage. Our aim is to create a new consciousness about how food was grown, raised, caught, and how these decisions affect the health of our communities and our environment.

A portion of your ticket to Community Table supports the creation of a new sustainable cookbook that features recipes from the dinner and complete background and stories about the ingredients. Community Table chefs and farmers will share tips to help us bring the philosophy of farm-to-table into our everyday.
