October brings the real first tastes of fall — and of winter! We’re talking squash (like the Boston Marrow) and root veggies (like the Gilfeather Turnip) and items from the Allium family (Wethersfield Onions, anyone?) Wait, wait. Never heard of them? Maybe that’s because they’ve been classified as ‘endangered’ and entered into the listings of Slow Food USA’s RAFT Program.

As we continue our RAFT Heirloom Harvest Dinner Series, you’ll actually get the chance to taste all of these lovely veggies, and more! Your next opportunity comes Thursday, October 7th at 6:30pm down in Foxboro. (Don’t worry, the Patriots aren’t in town, so traffic is no excuse to miss out!)

Chef Matthew Maue at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro is planning a major to-do for you: a reception with passed apps and then a four course dinner (hmm heirloom lettuce salad with country ham, braised short ribs, squash mousse!) This is the time to indulge in the late harvest, so definitely plan to join us for this scrumptious meal.

Cost for the evening is $60 with wine pairing available for and extra $15. As usual, we do require preregistration and payment.

**Since this will be a pre-planned set menu, please be sure to alert us of any food allergies or intolerances ahead of time. Thanks!**

Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro is located at 201 Patriot Place in Foxboro, directly across from CBS Scene. More information and directions can be found on their website.
