On the Radar, September 22: Wyebrook Farm Dinner and PHS Fall Garden Festival

Last year's festival
Summer may often be thought of as the best time for produce, but just because it's ending doesn't mean there isn't anything to look forward to. Below find two events on September 22 to put on your calendar now.

Over at Wyebrook Farms, chef Jonathan Adams (Pub & Kitchen) will be preparing a five-course meal at part of the farm's inaugural dinner series using meat and produce from the property and its neighboring farms. The intimate evening will begin with a champagne toast and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a rooftop candlelit dinner featuring beef tartare with egg yolk purée, ratatouille and crispy rice paper; Wyebrook porchetta with roasted squash and Castle Valley Mill polenta; and lime leaf custard with graham cracker crumble. Farmer Dean Carlson and Chef Adams will also both be on hand to discuss the menu (7 PM; $80 inclusive, BYOB; 150 Wyebrook Rd.; reservations can be made by e-mailing info@wyebrookfarm.com).

If you'd rather stay in the city, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be hosting a festival that day at the Philadelphia Navy Yard with music, food, a biergarden, workshops, gardening tips, children's activities and more. Stars of The Chew - Carla Hall and Daphne Oz - will be there leading demonstrations and awarding giveaways (9 AM-5 PM; for more information click here).
