+Tasting of Wild Harvest Shiitakes
We went the vineyard for a corporate retreat and booked the Chef and Farmer for a Day through Farm.Field.Sea. Nevette and team did a wonderful job managing our big group (20+ people) and had a beautiful day planned for us. The scenery was beautiful and it was so much fun to explore a new, more remote part of the island. My group loved learning about the shiitake mushrooms grown on the farm and the focus on "baby" vegetables that have proven to be very popular this season among the local chefs in the area. We loved the opportunity to learn about the oyster business on the island and even shucked our own oysters. And to top it off, we loved the picturesque table where we enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by a local chef. ---Boston Consulting Group
