Some of the best known chefs in Orange County will be plying their skills in the third annual Green Feast 5-course dinner held at The Ecology Center on Sat., September 10, 2011.
About Green Feast
Green Feast generates funds for educational programs at the South Orange County non-profit, housed in an historic farmhouse. Conceived by founder Evan Marks, the three-year-old learning facility offers programs for school children, families and adults interested in learning practical ways to grow organic gardens, conserve water and energy, and design sustainable living environments.
The Feast will take place from 4:00 p.m. until after dark. Dinner will be served on tables dressed in white linen and candles, set up communal-style on the grounds of The Ecology Center.
Before dinner, guests will be entertained by The Eco App Off where they will be sampling appetizers from 11 stations spaced around The Center.
Each course will have wine paired from Tablas Creek Vineyard, Edward Sellers Vineyard and Wine, and Bonterra Vineyards.
As each course is served, the rancher, fisherman or farmer responsible for the main ingredient will speak to guests about his or her special approach to organic, pasture-raised and sustainable farming. As a celebration of local, sustainable food, all ingredients for the meal are sourced within a 200 mile radius.

Persons wishing to become members, at a minimum price of $50 per person, can telephone The Ecology Center at (949) 443-4223.
