Exclusive Patrons Fall Dinner
Exclusive Patron's Dinner by Amy Thielen, local cookbook author, tv cook, and James Beard Award winning author of the culinary memoir "Give a Girl a Knife.” Amy and her husband Aaron Spangler (visual artist and founding member of the Nemeth Art Center board) will open up their newly built Hazelbrush Test Kitchen at their home near Park Rapids to 20 guests for the dinner party of the season. Expect five courses of delicate, decadent, delicious French dishes--fresh shellfish, market vegetables, local pastured pork, French cheeses, and warm pastries issued from Amy’s Italian wood-burning oven—wine will be provided by Russ Fay, owner and head buyer of The Cork Dork, our favorite boutique wine shop in Minneapolis. Joining Amy will be some of the area's best chefs including Erin (Andrus) Haefele of The Green Scene in Walker; Megan Handke, executive chef of Wonewok Conference Center, and Denese of Necce's Italian Ristorante. Dress code: full glam or full glamp, your choice. Tickets are limited and going fast. This tax-deductible donation comes with two free memberships to the Nemeth Art Center. $250.00.
