Heritage Prairie Farm Dinner to benefit academy

Bridges Montessori Academy in St. Charles and Heritage Prairie Farm in Elburn will team up to host a Farm Dinner on Saturday, May 10, at the farm, 2N308 Brundige Road, Elburn.

Farm Dinners at Heritage Prairie have been a tradition since 2007, according to a news release; the chef delights in tailoring menus to highlight the best of the season’s fresh flavors.

Cocktails with a cash bar begin at 5:30 p.m.; dinner, dessert, music and dancing will follow.

The appetizers that will be passed at the event will include Shrimp and Chorizo Tacos, Baby Greens Quiche and Pulled Ham Flatbread.

Dinner – an upscale five-course meal introduced by the chef himself – will be served family style, according to the Heritage Prairie Farm website. Entree items will include a Baby Greens Salad, Pan Seared Chicken, Quinoa Salad, Grilled Flank Steak and a Banc Finale, a variety of treats, such as spring cheese, fresh fruit, crackers, heritage salted brownies and sugar cookies. (The menu is subject to change.)

Live music will be provided by Majors Junction, a group that melds country and honky-tonk blues with folk undertones, hints of bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll.

All are welcome to attend.

Tickets cost $85 – including tax and gratuity – and must be purchased in advance through the farm at www.heritageprairiefarm.com or by calling 630-443-5989. All proceeds will benefit Bridges Montessori Academy.
