The Inn at Castle Hill on The Crane Estate Trustees Members Receive Special Rate at The Inn

The Trustees of Reservations invite all who are interested to attend The Inn at Castle Hill’s 4th Annual sustainable “Farm to Fork” Chef Dinners, the first of which is being held on October 27th on The Crane Estate in Ipswich, located at 280 Argilla Road. Connection with local foods is a simple but important theme for this year’s series, in which top area Chefs will create a unique blending of the freshest local produce and meats from Appleton Farms.

The Pre-fixe Four-Course dinners will be prepared by some of the top chefs in the region who have generously donated their time for this sustainable event series.

The Thursday dinners will begin with an open bar and the first course of hors d’oeuvres served fireside in the Tavern located next to The Inn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate at 6 PM, followed by a three-course meal with pared wines served at The Inn at Castle Hill.  The pre-fixe menu, including tips and taxes, is $125 per person. Seating is limited and reservations are required.  Proceeds will go to the ongoing preservation of The Crane Estate.

The Trustees’ first Farm to Fork chef dinner is being held on Thursday, October 27th, featuring Marco Suarez, Executive Chef at Jamaica Plain’s newest neighborhood spot, Canary Square, where he puts a creative culinary twist on classic American dishes.

Suarez is a member of Mayor Menino’s Urban Agriculture Working Group, which serves as an advisory board to the city on green and sustainable practices. Suarez’ background in urban agriculture plays a significant role in the sourcing and purveying of ingredients and greatly influences his culinary creations. His expertise on sustainability ties in with eco-conscious practices of Canary Square.

Suarez began his culinary career washing dishes at a local restaurant in his hometown Greenwich, Connecticut. After high school, he went on to train at the Culinary Institute of America. At the young age of 25, Suarez earned the top spot at Eastern Standard Kitchen in Kenmore Square. Most recently, Suarez was the Executive Chef at Bon Savor in Jamaica Plain.

Additional Farm to Fork chef dinners in the series to be announced.
