TONIGHT'S EVENT: Chef's Farm Table
Terra's Jeff Rossman kicks off new dinner series in East County. Dude can cook.
Thinking about dinner? Here's the plan. It starts at 6PM. You better get on it.
Jeff Rossman has a new dinner series at Terra called Chef's Farm Table. Rossman was hyper-local/sustainable/tip-to-tailable long before your child starting complaining that his Cheerios weren't toasted that morning with oats from your garden. He and sous chef Pablo Ibarra go to the market earlier in the day, find what's freshest, whip up a menu.The concept isn't new. But the chef is good, you're hungry, and sitting home eating Hot Pockets with whatever b-list movie Netflix has on doesn't exactly enhance the level of happiness in your life. Plus, It's a steal at $40 per person for at least four-courses. Terra's kicks off the CFT series tonight. To reserve, RSVP on their Facebook page, by Twitter or by calling 619-293-7088.
