Friends of Eater agreed that 2012 was the year "farm-to-table" became cliche, but never fear: Austin, Texas supper club Homegrown Revival is bravely pushing the boundaries of "farm-to" nomenclature with their upcoming "Farm-to-Disco" fundraiser. Chef Sonya Coté will prepare "A Night of Glitz, Glam and Fondue." The 70s food trends you may or may not have actually eaten with all 21th century food politicizing you've come to know and possibly tolerate. Also, melted cheese and tunes from the venerable DJ Chino Casino. Here's the press release:
Chef Sonya Coté and The Homegrown Revival to Present "Farm to Disco" Austin Dinner Event on January 14
All You Can Eat Fondue Feast and Disco Dance Party to Benefit Sustainable Food Center's Capital Campaign
On Monday, January 14, Austin non-profit organizations The Homegrown Revival and Sustainable Food Center will present "Farm to Disco; A Night of Glitz, Glam and Fondue" at the Swan Dive (615 Red River Street). Featuring a menu created by Chef Sonya Cote' inspired by '70s culture created from local meats, bread, veggies and cheeses, the "Farm to Disco" dinner will benefit SFC's Capital Campaign and is sure to be a double-knit, one-of-a-kind evening the likes of which this town has never seen! DJ Chino Casino will deliver a disco-definitive soundtrack at the dinner, which will also feature creative cocktails courtesy of Dripping Springs Vodka. Tickets are $60 a person and are available for purchase now at this location. Disco dress is encouraged!
"All of us at The Homegrown Revival are hoping to take farm fresh food to an unlikely place in an effort to create an appreciable vibe to our movement," commented Cote'. "If you can enjoy locally sourced food at a disco dance party then you can have it anywhere! Plus, I love wearing bell bottoms and the Swan Dive is an amazing location. Hope to see you there."
"SFC is thrilled to be partnering with Chef Sonya Cote, who is not only a longtime supporter of our work in the community, but a committed advocate for local farmers, food artisans and the traditions native to our place in the world, Central Texas," adds
Susan Leibrock, Community Relations Director for the Sustainable Food Center.
