DINNER IN THE ORCHARD - The quiet, secluded, pastoral setting of an old-fashioned orchard sets the stage for Dinner in the Orchard, a benefit for the Food Bank of Delaware. The event, open to the public, will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 7, at T.S. Smith & Sons in Bridgeville. The dinner will take place under the farms pavilion located off Orchards End. Ticket holders will enjoy farm-fresh foods from Sussex County farms prepared by students from The Culinary School at the Food Banks Milford Branch, craft beer, fine wines, plus live entertainment from The Swing Noteables. This years meal will be served family-style. We are thrilled to partner with T.S. Smith & Sons on our fifth annual Dinner in the Orchard event, said Chad Robinson, Milford Branch director. This event is one of our favorites. There is nothing like the peaceful orchard, carriage rides from Circle C Outfit and farm-fresh foods! We are looking forward to showing off the skills of our Culinary School students and supporting Sussex County farmers through a fresh, local menu. Executive Chef Tim Hunter and Chef Tish Badamshin have planned a seasonal menu including fried shrimp with pink grapefruit and avocado over arugula, striped bass with orange saffron butter on braised fennel, grilled corn fritters and more. Tickets are $30 per person. For more information, call 302-444-8074 or visit www.fbd.org/orcharddinner. Pictured Wayne and Phyllis Connor of Circle C Outfit speak to attendees at the 2016 Dinner in the Orchard. Circle C Outfit will again provide carriage rides through the farmlands of T.S. Smith & Sons at the 2017 Dinner in the Orchard.
