If you’ve watched any Saturday morning TV recently (not counting cartoons), you might have caught Ian Knauer’s show The Farm on WHYY. Knauer, who spent almost a decade as a cook in the test kitchen of a little magazine called Gourmet, has returned to his roots, cooking, filming, writing and teaching from his family’s farm in Chester County.
And now, he’s teaming up with neighbor Wyebrook Farm to host another of their wildly popular chef’s dinners on Saturday, April 12th. Fifty guests will enjoy a complimentary toast of Victory beer followed by a menu of Spring produce favorites and Wyebrook’s pasture-raised meats.
When Frank Bennett, the villain of the the 1991 film, Fried Green Tomatoes, turns up dead by the hand of Sissy, the cook, (in the yard, with the iron skillet) heroine Idgie Threadgood thinks for a minute. She says to Sissy’s son, “Big George…I think it’s hog boiling time.” To which his reply is, “No ma’am. It ain’t cold enough” and she insists, “It’s Hog. Boiling. Time.” [punctation mine]
On Saturday, May 25th Wyebrook Farms is welcoming Jonathan “Johnny Mac” Adams (Rival Bros. Coffee, formerly Pub & Kitchen) to prepare a special chicken based four-course dinner using meat raised on the Honey Brook farm as well as seasonal vegetable from neighboring farms.
The dinner is $100 per person, including tax and gratuity. The meal kicks off at 7 p.m. with a complimentary Victory beer toast and the dinner follows on the top floor of Wyebrook’s restored stone barn. Seating is limited to 40 guests and reservations are required.
