STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Stamford Museum & Nature Center will host a farm-to-table supper Saturday, Feb. 27, featuring Executive Chef Scott Miller, creator of Max’s Chef to Farm Program.
Raised in Woodbridge, Miller’s earliest memories are of wanting to be a chef -- and standing on a chair to cook with his grandmother. He graduated from culinary school at 19 and worked for some of Connecticut’s finest restaurants and country clubs. Miller was named Connecticut's "Chef of the Year" by the Connecticut Restaurant Association in 2011.
The dinner series began in 2009, as an opportunity for guests to enjoy the freshest foods and produce in the sublime beauty of Connecticut's farms. Each dinner is cooked from scratch and showcases that day's best produce, sourced daily from local farmers, ranchers and fisherman. The series has produced more than 100 memorable meals on some of Connecticut’s most beautiful farms and historic properties.
The evening will begin with artisanal hors d’oeuvres and cocktails during an exclusive gallery tour led by New York artist Peter Bradley of the new pop-up exhibition "EXTREME ART: Massive & Miniature" with art from the museum's permanent collection.
This dining experience will take place in the intimate setting of the Bendel Mansion, of the museum and it's winter chic attire. There will be an open bar.
The event begins at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $175 per person or $2,000 for a table sponsorship of 10 tickets. Seating is limited. Click here to buy tickets. For more information, visit the event webpage or call Claudia Carthaus at 203-977-6536. The museum is at 39 Scofieldtown Road, Stamford.
Proceeds from the event will support the mission and vision of the museum, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of art and popular culture, natural and agricultural sciences, and history. It describes itself as "a focal point for family activity and interaction, seeking to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, promote environmental stewardship, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning."
