Heavy Hors d’Oeuvres and a Hearty Cause

The Amagansett Food Institute’s Farmers Fare this Saturday, Aug. 20, 6-9 p.m. will open with hearty appetizers–consider spice-rubbed pulled pork sliders with a serious barbecue sauce, or ceviche or buttered radishes or tomatoes dusted with Amagansett Sea Salt and winds up with dancing and singing to the Samba rhythms of Escola de Samba Boom (whose Monday eve Sagg Main gatherings still draw quite a crowd.)

Dishing out seasonal specialties at the event held at Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett will be Balsam Farms with roasted corn, Carissa Waechter with her popular herbed foccaccia,  Michael Vignapiano of Fresh Flavors with a trio of  his Wednesday Route 27 Market favorites including a lavender infused panna cotta with strawberry puree.  There will be  a loaves and fishes combo (the ceviche) from Tracy Stoloff’s Night Owl Bakery,  the pulled pork sliders from Peter Ambrose’s Food for Forks, plus offerings from Fat Ass Fudge, Horman’s Best Pickles, Sunset Beach Farm, Fireplace Farm,  Blue Duck Bakery, Quail Hill Farm, and East End Apiaries.

New releases will flow from Paumanok, Lieb, Channing Daughters and Wolfer vineyards and Sweetauk’s  Deborah Aiza will be mixing her classic lemonade with LIV Vodka and Strawberry sorbetta.

The Fare will be held at Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett, behind the Amagansett Farmers Market. Tickets are $25 for children and $75 for adults. Benefactor tickets are available for $250 and come with a T-shirt. Tickets are available here.

And don’t forget the last two Souper Tuesdays at the Amagansett Farmers market, next Aug. 23, and Aug. 30.
