Join Coastal Roots Farm and The Hive for a very special “Taste of Shabbat.” Our evening will explore alluring, time-tested ways to uplift Shabbat dinner as space for celebration, reflection, and – as the Kabbalists call it – mochin d’gadlut, or expanded consciousness. Enjoy sampling delicious Shabbat recipes, from appetizers to dessert with Chef Tiffani as she demonstrates dishes that will impress any guests around the Shabbat table! Coastal Roots Farm’s Director of Jewish Life, Rebecca Joy Fletcher, will touch on what Jewish tradition teaches about the Sabbath dinner table and why inviting guests is such a mitzvah (good deed); then we will explore why setting a beautiful table can be so helpful, and lastly, how to prepare yourself for the transition into a different kind of time — into Shabbat time.
Tasting Menu – samples of the following:
- Appetizer: Local kale salad with roasted butternut squash and 24-hour pickled beets, accompanied by an apple-cider vinaigrette
- Main: Catalina offshore white fish “en papillote” with seasonal vegetables, thyme, and citrus. Served alongside Persian basmati rice pilaf with cranberries, sumac, turmeric, and slivered almonds
- Dessert: Fall-time apple cobbler topped with a brown sugar oat crumble
