If you’d like to get an advance taste of next week’s prix-fixe extravaganza, hustle over to the Auburn Farmers’ Market at the Juror’s Parking Lot on Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. That’s when Carpe Vino Sous Chef Ben Durham will be conducting a cooking demonstration of “Citrus Salt-Roasted Beets,” one of the appetizer courses we’ll be serving in the Friendly Confines all next week.
Ben, in his second appearance at the market, will walk you through the dish, step-by-step. You’ll get the recipe to take home, plus a taste of the dish (as long as it lasts!). All ingredients are sourced at the market: Beets, Farmers’ Market citrus, arugula and goat cheese.
Here’s a potential bonus: When you purchase ingredients on Saturday, you are eligible to enter a drawing at the Placer GROWN market booth to win a $100 Carpe Vino gift card. Just mention this email and good luck. . .we’ll see you there!
