Greenwich Historical Society to host Green Market Supper

The Greenwich Historical Society hosts their Green Market Supper, an evening of fine food and conversation Friday, June 26, 6-9 p.m., 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob.

The evening harks back to the era when Bush-Holley House was a boarding house noted for lively company and meals fresh from the garden. Taking a page from history, this casual-chic Green Market Supper will begin with cocktails and a stroll around the same lush landscape that inspired works by the American Impressionists of the Cos Cob art colony.

Classical guitarist Edward Wright will create a mellow groove, and farmer Dina Andrews of The Hickories, a farm and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in Ridgefield, will walk guests through the site’s period vegetable garden to talk about local farming and gardening trends and historic influences on today’s menus.

Cocktails and dinner will be artfully prepared by award-winning chef Tim LaBant of The Schoolhouse at Cannondale restaurant in Wilton. An early proponent of the “local and seasonal” movement, LaBant has been lauded as “the best and most creative farm-to-table chef in Connecticut.” LaBant and Andrews have a close working relationship, and many of the items on the evening’s menu will come directly from The Hickories farm.

Cocktails begin at 6 p.m. followed by a family-style dinner at 7. Adults only with seating limited to 70 people. Reservations required. While cocktails and wine are included, guests are welcome to bring a favorite wine to enjoy and share.

The Green Market Supper is partially underwritten by the David R. Wierdsma Fund, established to support select programs at the Greenwich Historical Society.

Cost is $75 per person, and includes cocktails and wine.

For reservations, visit greenwichhistory.org or call 203-869-6899, Ext. 10.
