“Pop-Up” Gastronomy: A New England Terroir

Wednesday, August 6, 2014
Start: 6:00 pm

Food and wine are the first markers of culture - belief and geography made manifest on a plate and in a glass. Join us as we celebrate food, wine, eating and drinking in our hyper-regional series: Pop-Up Gastronomy on the Waterfront. Our chefs and sommeliers will present you with multi-course food, wine and beer dinners and brief discussions of the influence of each region on their work.

The seatings at each of these events will be limited to 100 people. Tickets can be purchased through ECHO at $65 for members and $75 for all others (ticket price includes dinner and a glass of each of the featured wines). If last year’s very popular series is any indication, they’ll sell out fast. Each evening will have a different theme and on the last evening, August 20th, Bluebird will be pairing 7 Trappist beers with a delicious 7-course meal!

August 6: Confluence - New England Bounty/Continental Influence

Our New England dinner aims to capture the bounty of the American Northeast by focusing on three of the regions most defining food producing areas: the coastline, the animal farm, and the gardener's fields. We have also included some secondary influences, namely the meat and cheese artisans and the dairy farmer. Rather than focusing on a specific locale, each of the dishes on the menu aims to weave together several regional products to yield inherently New England cuisine. We present this dinner as a focused snapshot of August offerings for, above all, New England's food is subjected to the whim of the season; it is both simple and impossible to define.
