ark-of-tasteFor Slow Foodists, this dinner at SRJC’s Shone Farm is the event of the year.

Louis Maldonado (Spoonbar, Pizzando) has created a menu featuring rare Ark of Taste ingredients—foods and food traditions considered endangered and worth preserving—for the $85 per person dinner.

It’s a gastro-exploration centered around an Ossbaw Island Hog (originating on a small island in Georgia and thought to be descended from foundation stock brought by Spanish explorers) that includes crispy pig head and trotter terrine with Tupelo honey; country ham; geoduck clams, smoked daikon and Carolina gold rice; crushed potatoes in pork fat, pork shoulder, smoked ribs with cranberry bean cassoulet and peach leaf meringue.

Ark of Taste Dinner with Louis Maldonado, Sunday April 27, 5-8pm, Shone Farm, info at 894-2815.
