Taste of Alegria-Table on the Farm Dining Experience

In July we had the honor of attending and serving at the Taste of Alegria at the Orange County Great Park Farm + Food Lab where Chef Loghan Call of Planted Cuisine utilized produce from Alegria Fresh to prepare a 5-course, vegan tasting. The dinner was described as a “table-on-the-farm” organic dining experience where food is freshly picked from Alegra Fresh’s 100% organic living soil and then served that same day within a very short span of time between being plucked, prepared, and then plated. This process proves superior in quality and provides nutrient dense foods that promote both internal and external health. With eager eyes and empty bellies, we sat down to learn more about this ethical, zero-waste agricultural process. Below is the beautiful menu we were treated to at the Taste of Alegria.

Opening Drink – “Nettles n’ Roses”
Combination of rose & stinging nettle, mint iced tea with lemon, tumeric and local honey syrup

Appetizer – “Tomorrows Bruschetta”
