Greenmarket to Gotham
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Alfred Portale, Executive Chef & Partner of Gotham Bar & Grill, and Tim Stark, of Eckerton Hill Farms, discusses “Greenmarket to Gotham.” All summer, Gotham has featured a different farmer each week and (almost) exclusively uses their produce for a two-course, vegetarian lunch menu (for $25). The series is also a fundraiser for Grow NYC's program "Grow to Learn" that helps schools plan, implement and manage their school gardens. Tim Stark's farms, in Pennsylvania, are famous for their tomatoes and chiles; he’s also the author of Heirloom: Notes from an Accidental Tomato Farmer.
