Food, Wine and Music at Eigensinn Farm

"Food, wine and music lovers won’t want to miss a spectacular event hosted by Chef Michael Stadtlander at Eigensinn Farm on Sunday, September 20, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Chef Stadtlander is bringing together 14 of the Toronto area’s best chefs, 20 great wineries and breweries, one fantastic artisan cheese producer and guests including singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer and scientist-broadcaster David Suzuki for a multi-course locavore tasting and wine-pairing adventure. Proceeds from the event will go toward the David Suzuki Foundation’s work to conserve and protect Ontario's Greenbelt and surrounding areas, as well as the farmers of the 10th Concession, Grey Highlands.

“Talk about a great way to unwind from the frenzy of the film fest,” said David Suzuki Foundation development manager Simone Hicken. “This will be a day in the country like no other.”

Those who attend will enjoy food from 14 of the area’s great chefs – including Michael Stadtlander, Jamie Kennedy (Jamie Kennedy Kitchen), Anthony Walsh (Canoe), Trish Donnelly (Oyster Boy), Daisuke Izutsu (Kaiseki Sakura), Jason Bangerter (Auberge de Pommier) and more – paired with wine, beer and cider from 20 local producers – all to the accompaniment of music by guests including Sarah Harmer!

“Ontario’s greenbelt is irreplaceable, and this is a fun way to celebrate it while raising money to ensure it continues to provide invaluable natural services to the area and country,” said the David Suzuki Foundation’s Terrestrial Conservation and Science Program director Faisal Moola. Wrapping around the Golden Horseshoe, the 1.8-million-acre Greenbelt encompasses the Niagara Escarpment, the Oak Ridges Moraine, Rouge Park, hundreds of rural towns and villages, and some 7,000 farms, making it the largest and most diverse greenbelt in the world.

A limited number of tickets will available for $250, a portion of which is tax-deductible."
