Salt of the Earth dinner to benefit Garfield Farms
• On Nov. 11, Salt of the Earth will hold a benefit for Garfield Farms to help them fund a bioshelter, which allows the farm to extend the growing season.
"This is quite a cost for the farm to incur," said Chad Townsend, chef de cuisine at the restaurant.
The 11-course dinner will show off the bounty of Garfield Farms, which will include several vegetable courses as well as rabbit and duck raised at the farm. Vegetarians can opt for an all-vegetarian tasting.
The dinner begins with champagne and canapes at 6:30 p.m and a seated dinner at 7 p.m. Seats are $195 and can be reserved at 412-441-7258. All proceeds will benefit Garfield Farms.
Passport to Wine Tasting at University Club
• Oenophiles who would like to learn about wines from Argentina and Chile are invited to the Passport to Wine from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the University Club at the University of Pittsburgh.
Guests will have the opportunity to taste six wines paired with a dish from the restaurant. The cost is $25 for members, $30 for non-members. For reservations, please call 412-648-8213.
