The Squeaky Bean Farm + Table presented its final farm dinner of the season at Acres, an educational farm at Warren Tech High School in Lakewood, on Sunday, September 18. The dinner was a fundraiser to benefit the school and farm, which teaches students about cooking, organic farming and soil-building, and also sells produce to several restaurants and at the Union Station Farmers' Market. Chefs from Honor Society, the Squeaky Bean, Harman's, Cart-Driver, Bistro Vendôme, Bar Dough and Warren Tech's culinary program presented a seven-course dinner overflowing with farm-fresh produce.
Courses included corn miso soup from Honor Society's chef Josh Chesterson; salmon crudo from chef John Little of Harman's; bean soup with sweet-pepper sambal from Andrew Vanstee and Eric Cimino of Cart-Driver; rabbit confit from Adam Branz of Bistro Vendôme; beef roulade with celeriac purée from Sebastian Hoentszch of the Squeaky Bean; duck breast with carrot and walnut from Blake Edmunds of Bar Dough; and a dessert from Warren Tech chef-instructors Joachim Schaaf and David Bochmann.
