What: Seventh annual Village Feast, a benefit for the Davis Farm to School Connection

When: 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27

Where: Central Park, Fourth and C streets

Tickets: $65 per person ($55 for Slow Food Yolo members), on sale at the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St., (530) 758-2657, and online at http://www.villagefeast2011.eventbrite.com

Tickets are on sale now for the seventh annual Village Feast, which takes place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, in Davis’ Central Park. Guests are invited to dine under the sycamore trees and contribute to a great cause — the Davis Farm to School Connection.

The afternoon kicks off with an aperitif hour featuring “pizzas with a purpose,” cooked over the Artisan Baking on Wheels’ wood fire with seasonal ingredients from local farmers. Wine from Davis-based Senders Wines will complement the pizzas.

Guests will enjoy lunch at linen-draped tables and will be served a family-style meal featuring produce from local farmers prepared by Buckhorn Catering. The Provençal-inspired menu will include savory grilled lamb with fresh herbs, heirloom tomato salad and roasted vegetables with garlicky aioli.

Following the meal, Alex Roth, The Pepper Peddler, will brew his fair trade, organic, bike-roasted coffee (www.thepepperpeddler.com) to accompany the fresh fruit tarts.

There will be music and dancing courtesy of Yolo County’s own West Nile Ramblers. A silent auction will showcase local art and regional food and wine experiences. Guests will be invited to bid on items such as a farm tour and dinner for 10 at Full Belly Farm, a pancetta class with Jamie Buffington and a plein aire painting by local artist Jesse Pruet.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Davis Farm to School program, which supports the Davis Joint Unified School District in maintaining school gardens, recycling programs and local food in school lunches.

The Village Feast is modeled after “Le Grand Aioli,” the food lovefest that is a summer tradition of Provence, France. This event brings the community together around a local, farm-fresh meal during August.

In keeping with the “Le Grand Aioli” tradition, guests are asked to bring their own dinnerware — plates, flatware and cloth napkins.

In France, “everyone brings their best china, silver and linen napkins. It adds to the specialness and enjoyment of a long, leisurely meal,” says Village Feast co-founder Ann Evans of Davis.

Tickets are $65 per person ($55 for Slow Food Yolo members), are available at the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St., (530) 758-2657, and online at http://www.villagefeast2011.eventbrite.com.

“Help us bring Yolo County farmers to the table,” says Talia Hack-Davie, Davis Farm to School program coordinator. “These tickets are just $50, and are available for purchase through the ticket website.”
