Who knows? You might also pick up some good shopping tips.


Attendees will then join Chef Brad at Compass Restaurant, and be seated at a private table as he prepares a special multi-course meal with Farmers Market Offerings.

Hi George Souto 

Well I know how you like to eat!!

I would probably be there if we weren't going to be out of town. Perhaps the next one!

Have a wonderful weekend!

thanks for posting The Compass endorsement.  It's going into Contacts and forwarded to the Cali contingent.  

btw, when did SoCal become Cali?

Jeff, Interesting concept!  While we have farm to table restaurants here, can't say I've ever heard of one taking this next step and including the shopping with the chef aspect, then watching what was purchased be used.

Agreed Bill (aka Liz and Bill Spear ).

It's been a popular event for a couple of years and certainly something that would be fun, and tasty, to do. And nice to highlight our local Farmers Market!

It's another one of the efforts of our local business association to promote downtown businesses and getting more people coming into the downtown area. And it's working!!

Morning Jeff.

For me to consume a 5 course meal, the offerings will need to be real small.  However, it sounds like a deal, I'll make a bet the event will be sold out, before long.

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS - I have gone to chef cooking classes and learned so much.  I see this as an extension.  I wish I were closer.  I would love to go.

How fun does this sound, Jeff? Are you attending? Would love to hear about it if you do.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 5 months ago

Good morning Jeff. Must say, the wife and I would love it if we lived closer and could get tickets! Enjoy if you can get tickets!

You had me at farm to table, that is definitely the way to go.  I worry about what other restaurants are putting in my food.

There is something in the same vein in nearby Ojai.  It is located in a farmhouse, I have heard rave reviews about it, but we have not made it there as of yet.  I love this concept and would go if it was closer.  A

I see that you are not going to be in town but, gosh, this one would be so much fun, Jeff! It's an event that is right up my alley, for sure!

Hi James Dray 

Yeah, 5 courses is a lot but I bet the portions are small. I have heard very positive feedback on this event but have yet to attend myself!


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 5 months ago

Grant Schneider  That class must have been fun - something I would enjoy, but have not yet done.


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 5 months ago

Wish I could Nina Hollander  but will be out of town. Maybe the next one.

No doubt it will be enjoyed by all, but me this time Wayne Martin
