Farm to table: seasonal tasting @ North Pond

Our third farm-to-table outing takes us to North Pond, rated Extraordinary to Perfection in every category by Zagat, the only Chicago restaurant in Epicurious's list of top 10 farm-to-table restaurants in the United States, and which offers a $90 per person seasonable tasting.

According to Epicurious, "Chef Bruce Sherman can sound preachy but ultimately he believes farm-to-table dishes just taste better than others. 'By the nature of the relationship and the quality of the products supplied, the flavor of every dish is dramatically improved,' he maintains. 'And philosophically, my involvement and partnerships make a more direct and meaningful impact on the local community and economy, and allow me to connect more personally with the food we serve.' Put simply: People are much more interested in understanding where their food comes from than ever before.

"Sherman supports local farmers and artisans by using recently harvested products and highlighting the special character of those ingredients; his website lists dozens of contributing farms. 'We choose preparations and pairings meant to accentuate their unparalleled flavor,' he says.

"Recent sample dishes (they change daily) include a farm egg and lobster dish (sunny-side egg, lobster meat gratin, English peas, onions, shellfish emulsion) and grass-fed beef (seared beef tenderloin, smoked kielbasa, browned veal liver; piccolo farro, pickled ramps, sauce aigre-doux)."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
