This past Friday the 13th (unlucky we were not), we stopped by the Three Sisters Farm for an exclusive dinner preview. The farm is currently owned by Cliffton Middleton, who is handing it down to Jonathan Gambino. Chef Jon is planning something big, a unique dining destination spot. And we got to be his first customer.
It starts off with a quick hors d'ouevre (that day it was starfruit with firebush honey), followed by a farm tour, then finally a gorgeously prepared dinner by candlelight and campfire. Chef Jon describes it as, "sitting at an old wooden table, under the moonlight, surrounded by fruit trees." During the farm tour we actually harvested our first course. Try finding a farm dinner that does that!
And by the crackling fire, dinner was served. The first course was a meal of tostones (fried green plantain) with 3 sister sauces: black bean, guacamole,and mojo.
This was followed by a salad with ingredients we helped harvest. It was delicious and light with dried jackfruit to punch up the flavor.
We then had handmade pasta with baby carrots and herbs, which was followed by a hearty dish of Florida brown rice, yucca and callaloo.
The meal ended with a black sapote and carrot bunt cake, mamey ice cream and caramelized bananas. Remember tickets are $50 a person, and $75 if you would like the four-course meal paired with wine. Simply contact the Chef via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a time slot on the weekends. This is an experience unlike any other in Miami right now.
