From page A3 | July 10, 2012 |

The Winters Farm to School Program will host a Bastille Day Feast from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the historic Wolfskill Ranch in Winters.

One, long row of tables seating more than 150 guests will be nestled under the canopy of the 150-year-old olive trees lining the driveway at the ranch. Guests will enjoy a multi-course meal that includes Rominger Ranch lamb prepared five ways, locally sourced fruits and vegetables and a selection of fine wines from Yolo County wineries.

Participants should bring their own tableware — including a salad, dinner and dessert plate — as well as cloth napkins. The tables take on a unique and festive spirit when some bring their most fancy china, candelabras, silver bowls and other fun accoutrements.

Included in the day’s activities is a tour of the Wolfskill Ranch beginning at 11:45 a.m., appetizers and wine starting at 12:30 p.m. and the feast from 1 to 3 p.m.

The menu includes appetizers of fresh grilled figs with prosciutto; peppered goat cheese toasts topped with chopped nectarines, thyme and olive oil; and chickpea crepes with walnut and black olive tapenade. The first course will see platters of fresh burrata cheese with heirloom tomatoes, olive oil and grilled bread.

The second course includes petit poissons (fried smelt) with lemon aioli, and the main course is lamb five ways, zucchini gratin and tomatoes Provencal. For dessert, there will be meringues with summer fruit and Chantilly cream.

A silent auction is planned as well, featuring some one-of-a-kind items.

Seating is limited and tickets are required. Tickets are $100 per person and may be purchased at Pacific Ace Hardware, 35 Main St. in Winters, or online at www.brownpaperticket.com. For more information, call (530) 795-6109.

The Winters Farm to School Program was launched in 2011 with the mission of raising funds to provide fresh, local produce, fruits and nuts for the community’s school food programs.

“Providing this healthy food from local farmers boosts both our children’s health and our local economy,” a news release said.
