Welcome

P

Dear family, friends, and guests, assions abound at the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival and what better way to show our love of food and wine, than to double the size of our festival in 2012! Now in its sixth year, with over ten events, the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival has added daytime events, trade panels, and a newly created charity component Chefs Dish Back™, which involves more than fifteen local and national charities.

While the festival continues to grow, it is important to us to keep every event personal. We seek to create intimate culinary experiences which encompass the best of Palm Beach County: our fine restaurants, golf, beaches, philanthropy and camaraderie, sustainable and organic farming and sunshine. Whether you attend Burgers on the Beach at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach or Food Truck: Impossible held after the golf tournament at The Breakers Rees Jones® Course, there will be a roster of nationally renowned master chefs, culinary TV personalities and wine and spirit producers. For chocoholics, Jacques Torres, a.k.a. Mr. Chocolate, is in town. A “slow food” advocate? Then attend Food4Thought at Swank Specialty Produce’s farm or Sustain at PB Catch Seafood & Raw Bar. Love to discuss the notes of a wine? Spend the afternoon with Master Sommelier Virginia Philip and Chef Norman Van Aken. Of course, there’s much more. Turn to page 50 for the complete schedule. I am also very proud to support an array of vital local and national organizations through our Chefs Dish Back™ program. These organizations are seeking to improve the health and well-being of our community through thoughtful food consumption. Learn about these organizations on page 56. We hope you enjoy every morsel of every bite. Welcome to our food movement! Sincerely,

David Sabin Festival Organizer

T

he words organic and sustainable are becoming household terms. From the inside out, there is a moving trend towards conscientious consumption, and with such change it falls on us to do some research and jump in faithfully. We asked seven local organic businesses to break down their unique, sustainable farming practices, and answer a set of basic questions. We now have proof that happy cows come from the South too! However per your next social milieu on the topic; let’s figure out where you stand. How do you feel about your groceries? How far did your lettuce travel before you met? Does clean soil sound like an oxymoron? Below is a list of scenarios to help you identify (you may have more than one answer).

Scene: your local grocery/food store, you are shopping for apples: a. You grab a local, organic apple without hesitation. After-all you want beautiful skin and price is no object!

b. You grab a local, organic apple. Sustainable produce is all you buy because of your concern for the environment, you barely glance at the price.

c. You belong to a food-coop where organic, local produce is available exclusively and the prices are fair. You volunteer 3 hours a week for this privilege and bring your own cloth bag to take the goods home.

d. You hold a non-organic apple mid-air above your cart, eyeing the organic section afar. You feel guilty for being ‘frugal’. e. You hold a non-organic apple midair above your cart, eyeing the organic section afar and think you are smart for saving money, since the whole organic, sustainable farming theory is a conspiracy.

f. I’ve never heard the term sustainable agriculture, I can’t keep up!

If you answered f, do not panic. Within minutes you could be using these terms like a pro, feel inclined to sign up for a CSA program, or at least begin to eat for a flawless complexion. Immediately following stay tuned for a proper definition of Sustainable Agriculture, and important comments from our top Palm Beach chef’s explaining how they employ sustainable practices in their work. Enter your crash course in all things organic and sustainable.

Glaser Organic Farms (Organic Raw and Vegan Foods) 19100 Southwest 137 th Avenue, Miami FL (305) 238.7747 glaserorganicfarms.com

Coconut Grove Organic Farmers Market 330 Grand Avenue, Miami FL Sat 10am - 7pm

Stan Glaser was trained as an architect. Subsequently he traveled for several years in the Far East and India, watching and learning a new way to eat and look at food. He returned to pioneer a new vegan/raw culture which he keeps alive and well on Glaser Farms in Southern Florida. IN OPERATION: 35 years. In 1979 Stan Glaser started the legendary farmer’s market in Coconut Grove, it’s still running strong. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: ‘Quality living soil’ is the secret ingredient, and one of the sustainable practices behind the success of Glaser Farms. They use no pesticides. “Striving for harmony between our bodies and the Earth”. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, sprouts and herbs are grown on the farm under 100% organic certification by the USDA. (United States Department of Agriculture).

Free to Be SPECIALTY ITEMS: Salads, juices, nut butters, dressings; deserts (they are famous for their pies), sugar free ice cream (nut based and dairy free); goat milk, kefir, and feta Cheese (all locally produced); and prepared vegan and raw foods of an amazing assortment. UNIQUE: Glaser produces a wealth of prepared organic foods and body products, using as little processing as possible. The website is quite informative about sustainable agriculture, and organic living. The market is an institution in Coconut Grove, evidence by the crowds it draws. You will catch Stan with his impeccably organized boxes (you can’t take the architect out of the man).

Lady Moon Farms Headquarters 1795 Criders Church Road Chambersburgh, PA (717) 369-2113 Bainbridge, Georgia Punta Gorda, Florida ladymoonfarms.com

Lady Moon Farms, as poetic a name can be, embraces the organic philosophy by law and spirit wholeheartedly. From humble beginnings they have grown exponentially in recent years. The soil is rich, the customers loyal, and the employees whistle while they work.

30

IN OPERATION: First certified in 1988 in the keystone state of PA by founders Tom and Chris Beddard. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: Very aggressive soil building program, bringing soils that had been overused and underappreciated back to life with copious amounts of compost, cover crops, rock minerals and crop rotations. No synthetic pesticides, herbicides or petroleum based fertilizers. Social justice is honored by fair and honest treatment of the staff, and lastly allowing their farms to provide friendly habitat for wildlife SPECIALTY ITEMS: Seasonal: summer tomatoes, peppers and squashes; fall and spring kale, chards, lettuce and all kinds of veggies in between. Standouts are heirloom tomatoes and an heirloom medley mix of cherry tomatoes. They grow what is said to be the sweetest grape tomatoes in FL and the greens are known for their nutrient density, enhanced by the mineral rich soils. UNIQUE: Fanatical about freshness Lady Moon ships products within a day or so of harvest, and deliver highquality produce year round with locations along the east coast. The employees feel valued, respected and well compensated. Check out their Facebook page for farm updates, questions answered about farming, and helpful links and recipes. They also run contests giving away Lady Moon Farm shirts!

UNIQUE: Pork is pasture raised. I had to hear this twice for it to sink in, you hear about other types of animals being pasture raised, but never pork. This is truly unique.

Thompson Farms

2538 Dixie Rd., Dixie GA 31629 (229)263.9074 / Toll Free: (866)463.9218 thompsonfarms.com

I was blown away by the fresh and flavorful taste, not to mention the assurance that these hogs were treated with such care. Go out and get some today or order online!

Discovering Thompson Farms as a city girl, if I can say--this is my favorite pork farm. Besides unbelievable quality and taste, from the people to the products they are 100% the real deal. IN OPERATION: The Thompson family of Dixie Georgia has been raising hogs since the 1930’s. In the past 8 years they have cultivated an all-natural pork farm. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: They maintain the only 5+ rating from the Global Animal Partnership of America. This is the highest rating available on the market for meat farms. The hogs are raised free range. There are no antibiotics or hormones used. They use no barbed-wire or wood fencing, no harmful pens, just one simple strand of electric line around the perimeter of the property SPECIALTY ITEMS: Country Smoked Sausage. In an allnatural casing, this meat is smoked with peach wood right from the farm (a milder smoke doesn’t overpower the flavor of the meat) done on the premises.

Paradise Farms

19801 SW 320th Street, Homestead, FL 33030 (305) 248-4181 | paradisefarms.net

What you see is what you get, and the feng-shui landscape is just the beginning. A farm that is through-and-through beautiful, with edible flowers and highly nutritious greens— a visit might be worth a thousand words. IN OPERATION: The owner Gabriele Marewski bought an abandoned avocado grove in 1999 and transformed it into what is now Paradise Farms Organic. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: Certified organic and biodynamic principles are in place. SPECIALTY ITEMS: : Microgreens, baby greens, oyster mushrooms and edible flowers. They have 52 (plus) different


Free to Be varieties of edible flowers throughout the year. In the spring they have an edible flower walking tour, now that’s unique. UNIQUE: The farm design is based on sacred feng-shui geometry. Philosophy: “I believe that form is as important as function and that we should work in beauty. The farm has a wonderful relaxing energy that we call “being in our bubble” says Gabriele. “Our guests immediately pick up on it and truly enjoy their time here.” Check out the website for these events: “Dinner in Paradise”, and “Brunch in Paradise”, where Miami’s best chefs create dishes from the farm products, and serve it ‘farm to table’. Bed and breakfast stays are available.

Gaby’s Farm

25905 Southwest 197th Avenue, Homestead, FL 33031 (305) 246-7702 | gabysfarm.com

The list of exotic tropical fruits harvested for these all natural gourmet ice creams and sorbets is staggering. If you go on the website under the flavors category you will see what I’m talking about. Mystery, intrigue, beauty, aroma, history, passion and nutrition are the makeup for these delectable treats.

IN OPERATION: Gaby’s farm orginated in 2000. Not solely for profit but to experience the tropical fruit production, it wasn’t until 2005 that the promotion of cremes and sorbets were born. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: Maintaing an organic philosophy is at the heart, there are no pesticides used in the farming of these tropical fruit, ingredients are all natural with no artificial flavors or colors. SPECIALTY ITEMS: Exotic Tropical Fruit: Sappote, Cashew Apple, Canistel, Guanabana, Jackfruit, Guava, Dragon fruit, Sapodilla, mango, pineapple, passion fruit…etc. The lists go on. UNIQUE: Besides all of the above, with no artificial flavoring, these desserts have a very high ratio of fruit to cream. Because of the fresh fruit, it is rich in vitamins. So you heard it here first ladies and gentlemen: this ice cream is good for you. Jumping Jackfruit anyone? Or how does Vanilla Shiraz tempt your palate? After tasting Gaby’s Farm, you will never see ice cream the same again. Lucky you South Florida!

Swank Farms

(specialty produce, Hydro-Natural) 14311 North Road, Loxahatchee, FL 33470 | (561) 202-5648 swankspecialtyproduce.com

Swank Farms is a wonderful turn of expression for an agricultural project that is dressed to impress. My very first hydroponic (sans soil) farm visit, I dutifully admired. It presents as both chic, and futuristic which is perfect for Southern Florida. Next stop: Mars. IN OPERATION: 10 years in business as a husband and wife team. ORGANIC/SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES: The Swanks utilize organic pest and disease control aka: no fungicides, herbicides or pesticides. Organic nutrition is listed on the packaging. Drip tape is used for irrigation, and a nutrient film technique is employed for all their hydroponics (including recycled water).

They also offer a small CSA program. UNIQUE: Diversification of the varieties they grow. Farm to table events! Swank is hosting the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival FOOD4THOUGHT, how appropriate. You won’t want to miss it. December 9, 12:00pm – 4:00pm.

Sustain Palm Beach

SUSTAIN PALM BEACH definition for sustainable agriculture Sustainable agriculture involves food production methods that are healthy, do not harm the environment, respect workers, are humane to animals, and support farming communities. Sustainability normally includes buying food as locally as possible, assuming that it is sustainably produced.

Taste Palm Beach asks these chefs, how do you employ sustainable agriculture in your work? Virginia Philip

Lindsay Autry

Virginia Philip Wine Shop & Academy “My employees get a kick out of me. I recycle anything that I can. Our building does not recycle so all of our bottles are collected and recycled at our homes. (Ditto with paper.) If I can use the back side of paper, I try to do so. We do recycle all cardboard, which our building does do. Most recently, I purchased hard plastic plates to utilize for employee meals so we would cut down on paper plates. Anything we can do to help save the environment, we implement at the shop.”

Sundy House “I spend the majority of my day talking to local farmers and purveyors trying to source as many sustainable products as possible. Teaching my staff the importance of our ingredients and where they come from only helps to build a stronger team and instill an appreciation for the food they are preparing and serving.”

Aaron Black PB Catch “Sustainable agriculture and aquaculture are imperative if we are to protect the populations of wild species and promote healthy and ever improving local ingredients. We are constantly searching for new and local ingredients that are sustainable. The Venus clam is our current star.”

Dean James Max 3030 Ocean “We create a work environment that is driven by passion and use purveyors and products that have that same focus. We try to keep things local to both support those around us and because it ensures the highest quality of product.”

32

Michael Wurster Malcolm’s “We have developed relationships with our local farms and have told them what we are looking for prior to their planting to ensure that we are supporting them and that we are cooking in the season. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Jodi Swank and her family, who run sustainable farm, to develop our menus. We speak weekly about products that I am looking for and adjusting our menu to what she is growing. I look closely at our relationships and always source locally before looking outward. We work closely with Gary’s Seafood before we look at our menus and what we want to do for the season along with Bemka Caviar to ensure that the caviars that we offer are responsibly farmed for the species survival. As a chef the most important thing that I can do is to ensure that the ingredients that we use are available for the next generation of chef’s that come through our kitchens.”

Arnaud Chavigny

Mariya Kovacheva

Café Boulud “I try to work with farmers for fruits, mangoes, peaches, strawberries, and also to look for fair trade products.”

Café Boulud “Our guests are more and more interested in learning that the wines they enjoy are produced in an environmentally-friendly manner. Selecting wines made by using sustainable practices assures me that I offer not only excellent quality wines, but also that I promote wines that are increasingly competitive on the market. I encourage such wines on Cafe Boulud’s list and love to share the wines’ with our guests and my team.

Darryl Moiles The Four Seasons Palm Beach “We utilize our garden not only for product, but also for education. We are also involved with local farmers and source many of our products direct from the farms.”

Jim Leiken Café Boulud “We employ sustainability by cultivating strong relationships with local farmers and fishermen, and trying to showcase their products to our customers. As chefs, we have an important role in educating our customers about not just new products or novel preparations, but about the virtues of locally-raised produce, meat and dairy, and locally-caught fish. My hope is always that they will try something at our restaurant that makes them look at an ingredient they might have taken for granted before in a different light, and realize that our food tastes better because of where it comes from. And if that makes them head to the green market instead of the supermarket, or seek out locally-grown eggs instead of eggs that come from a thousand miles away, then I am doing my job.”

Jeff Simms The Breakers Palm Beach “Respect for the environment has long been a guiding principle of our business practices and we understand the need to protect and preserve our environment. We are doing our part by minimizing waste, educating our customers and employees and increasing awareness. We buy local sustainable products as much as possible regardless of the price point. We encourage our customers to give us the leeway to recommend or change menu items based on local availability versus shipping in products from around the world. Another example of our commitment is our weekly Green Market featuring local sustainable products for our team members.”

Jennifer Reed The Sugar Monkey “I buy local produce when it is available, and buy from other small farms and producers when it’s not available here.”

Julien Gremaud Pistache “By supporting sustainable agriculture, we also support the nearby fishermen and community. This allows us to produce a menu where local seafood is the star. From a flavored perspective, locally-caught is inherently fresher.

Clay Conley Buccan “We buy locally, organically and seasonally as much as possible. We also recycle, provide filtered water in reusable glass bottles, use energy efficient lighting and appliances, and are intensely efficient with our internal food production in order to reduce waste.”

Zach Bell Addison Reserve Country Club “My role as a chef in the cycle of sustainable agriculture is simple. It is my responsibility to support the farmers and producers that are practicing and perfecting their ecologically renewable systems in their operations. Being able to introduce our club members and my cooks to the great produce that is the fruit of their labor is a great feeling. It is too tempting in a busy restaurant, hotel and club environment to forget about these artisans and take the easy way out with our purveyors, but it is up to us to keep them thriving.”

FESTIVAL WINE PICKS Sustainable Wine Seghesio Zinfandel

Chamisal Stainless Chardonnay

Champ de Rêves Pinot Noir

It’s full-bodied, dry and spicy, with briary flavors of wild berries, mocha, tobacco, leather and exotic spices. More importantly, it’s absolutely delicious. The grapes come from Seghesio’s best vineyards in the Alexander and Dry Creek valleys. ($22)

Chamisal focuses on developing long term-relationships with sustainably farmed vineyards from very cool coastal areas and warmer inland areas. This complex wine exhibits classic varietal characteristics with aromas of ripe pineapple, fresh Gala apples, pear and candied lemon. The palate has a weight that belies its unoaked status with a rich entry of fresh citrus fruit that leads into secondary aromas of fig and mineral. Finishing clean and crisp with lingering acidity, the wine is fresh and vivacious with a dense mid-palate. This vintage proves that with the right grapes and winemaking, Chardonnay does not need oak or malolactic fermentation to shine. ($18)

Characterized by aromas and flavors of blue/black fruit, floral and spice elements, earth and a distinct minerality, Champ de Rêves’ calling card is its mouthfeel, which exhibits both a silky textural trait and a fi rm, gravelly structure that’s a testament to its high altitude origins. ($38)

Seghesio Zinfandel practices sustainable farming: • Our farming is in the Fish Friendly Farming Certification Program with our efforts to protect streams and rivers adjacent to our vineyards from detrimental run-off. • Pesticide usage is reduced naturally with the introduction of predator habitats (i.e., bat boxes, bird houses.) Also, native and seeded cover crops help reduce dust, thus naturally reducing mite populations. • Every vineyard is planted with winter cover crops intended to hold precious soils in place while their roots host a rich mixture of beneficial micro-organisms that provide nutrition to the vines. • In preparation for a new vineyard planting, no chemicals are used. Rather, a massive plow is employed to break up and turn fi ve feet of the soil. Then, roots that would have been fumigated in the past are removed by hand.

Duval-Leroy Brut Champagne Providing a perfect balance between fi nesse and power, it draws out flavors of dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow figs, expressing its subtle and melt-inthe-mouth vinosity. It was the only Champagne recognized by Wine Spectator magazine in its Top 100 classification for 2008 ($43)

Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge Guigal CDR Rouge has scents of fresh fruits with red berries and spices, while the mouth feel is full, round and racy with rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensely aromatic wine. Overall, the wine is full with a long fi nish and plenty of elegance and fi nesse due to the well-balanced tannins and fruit. Guigal CDR Rouge is a red blend comprised of 45% Syrah, 52% Grenache, 3% Mourvèdre and the average age of vines is about 35 years. ($15)

Chefs Dish Back™

WHY WE DO THIS Since its first year, the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival has benefited charities. Over the course of the years, the charities have changed but the goal has remained: to make a difference in lives, to encourage participants to give and to give charities a new audience. This year the Festival launches Chefs Dish BackTM program. The program invites participating talent to each choose a charity that is close to their hearts. In its inaugural year, the program features 20 charities, some local, other national, chosen by 26 participants. The majority of the charities are hunger-relief programs, while others fight childhood cancer, serve veterans and inspire at-risk children in need of care. Whether grassroots or nationally-recognized, each charity is making a difference. This unique charitable component allows the participating chefs to have a unique connection to Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, its audience, volunteers, staff and local community. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Festival go directly to these community-based organizations. Come out this December for a worldly cuisine and spirits experience all while helping to fight hunger, discover a cancer treatment, inspire a child and educate the country about healthy eating habits.

PARTICIPATING CHARITIES

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help fi nd a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that fi rst stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $55 million toward fulfi lling Alex’s dream of fi nding a cure, funding over 250 pediatric cancer research projects nationally. For more information on Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

American Humane Association is the country’s fi rst national humane organization and the only charity dedicated to protecting children and animals. Since 1877 the organization has been at the forefront of virtually every major advance in protecting our most vulnerable, including children, pets and farm animals. Today we’re also leading the way in understanding the humananimal bond and its role in therapy, medicine and society. American Humane Association reaches millions of people every day through groundbreaking research, education, training and services that span a wide network of organizations, agencies and businesses.

As part of its charitable mission, American Humane Association works with American farmers, consumers and communities to ensure the welfare and humane treatment of more than 200 million farm animals through the American Humane Certifi ed® program, the nation’s fi rst, largest and fastestgrowing certification program. Based on leading innovation, research, science and best practices for the humane treatment of farm animals, the American Humane Certifi ed label seeks to provide consumers with a choice of humanely raised beef, pork, poultry and dairy products at their local grocers.

The Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, established in 2009, is devoted to inspiring culinary excellence in young professionals and preserving the traditions and quality of classic cuisine in America. Our aim is to build a sustainable community of young American chefs that are knowledgeable and confident in their career pursuits and will be life-long ambassadors of quality and excellence in the world of gastronomy.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is a nonprofi t youth development organization serving the County’s most disadvantaged youth. Our mission is to inspire and assist all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Ensuring a meaningful education to help every child succeed in America has never been more crucial than it is today. America’s young people are performing poorly in school. Despite decades of reform, the American educational system is struggling to meet the increasing demands placed on it. The 7,500 children served by the Boys & Girls Clubs annually attend, for the most part, the county’s lowest performing schools. The attention they are not receiving in school is multiplied by a lack of supervision at home. Consider, 83 percent of the members at the Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County are classifi ed as latchkey children, compounding the alarming rates of academic failure among our area’s children. We provide core programming in six areas including: education and career development; character and leadership development; sports, fi tness and recreation; health and life skills, technology; and cultural arts.

Chefs Collaborative works with chefs and the greater food community to celebrate local foods and foster a more sustainable food supply.

In Charleston 52 restaurants have come together to make this effort possible. Each of the volunteer restaurants has agreed to serve 500 meals one Wednesday out of the year. Meals are prepared in the restaurants kitchen and delivered and served by the restaurant staff. The program was launched in Detroit and Savannah in hopes to inspire other cities and chefs to use a familiar format in their home town.
