An Incredible Feast

After diners at last year’s An Incredible Feast had to endure unintentionally watered-down wine and dishes made soggy by sudden gray August rain, organizers got wise and decided that this year’s event would take place under a tent. That, of course, practically guarantees warm and sunny weather for today’s Feast. Founded five years ago by Tamara Murphy (of Brasa fame), the event raises money for the Good Farmer Fund, which provides emergency relief for struggling local farmers. Her conceit is to serve bites concocted using only market fresh, sustainable ingredients from local farmers and food purveyors, plus beer and wine, There will be 30 dishes to sample from top chefs like Daisley Gordon (Campagne), Dustin Ronspies (Art of the Table), and Don Curtiss (Volterra). Tickets are pricy, but they include country fair-style games, live music, and a dessert auction. Dress up if you like; at least you won’t have to wear galoshes. SUZIE RUGH
