Glynwood Farm Dinner

Chef Alex Raij, owner of Txikito, El Quinto Pino and La Vara, in New York City, and a participant in the Glynwood Center’s 2018 Cider Journey to Spain, will be preparing Glynwood’s March Farm Dinner, part of a monthly series. The event will take place from 6:30 to 10 p.m. on March 9.

A nonprofit located in Cold Spring, Glynwood serves food and farming professionals across New York’s Hudson Valley. It advances regenerative agriculture—conserving landscapes, promoting biological diversity and mitigating climate change—to benefit the natural environment, local economies and human health. Guided by “the highest standards of ecosystem, soil, animal and community well-being,” it is a teaching venue for aspiring farmers and a test bed for regenerative, economically viable farming practices. The goal is to train the next generation of agricultural entrepreneurs.

Glynwood’s monthly farm dinner series features a new chef every month who translates much of the nonprofit’s work into his or her cuisine. The focus is on seasonal vegetables and fruits and ethically raised proteins, particularly those specific to the Hudson Valley.

These dinners are designed to further Glynwood’s mission, which is “to ensure that the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives. If we succeed, residents are nourished and visitors are inspired. While our operations are based mostly in this region, we believe our values serve a larger social purpose.”

Cost: $100. Location: 362 Glynwood Rd., Cold Spring, NY. For more info, visit Glynwood.org.
