Farm Table Dinner with Chef John Brogan
Sat, October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$195.00
Chef John Brogan of Rye, is no stranger to Green Dirt Farm! He has worked alongside Megan and Colby Garrelts owners/chefs of both Rye and Bluestem at many Farm Table Dinners in the past and hosted his own Farm Table Dinner in 2017 (GDF team members will attest that it was one our favorite dinners of the year!) John’s career in the foodservice industry began at a seafood market in a town outside of Chicago when he was just 15 years old. He learned to butcher fish at the store and became a line cook at an area restaurant, just a year later. After high school, he wanted to get formal culinary training and attended Johnson and Wales in Charleston, S.C. There, he received an Associate Degree in the Culinary Arts and a Bachelor’s Degree in Foodservice Management. After several years working alongside James Beard award-winning chefs. Brogan returned to Chicago and worked at several highly-regarded establishments in the city, including Crofton on Wells. However, on a whim, he came to Kansas City and was smitten with the area. What began as a short weekend trip became a move westward to Kansas. In Kansas City, he worked for several restaurants, including 40 Sardines with James Beard award-winning Chef Debbie Gold. He later joined Megan and Colby Garrelts at Bluestem. Now, he has moved with them to their second restaurant, Rye. Brogan will tell you that Rye lets him go back to the Midwestern cuisine that he grew up with and loved. This is John’s second appearance in our line up of Farm Table Dinners. We are thrilled to welcome him back and excited to see what he will create for his five-course, one-night-only menu highlighting our lamb and award-winning cheese!
Our Farm Table Dinners are unique, one of a kind, dinners that reflect the bounty of the season. Because the meals rely on ingredients that are sourced from what is fresh and seasonally available, the menus are not created until 1-2 weeks prior to the event. We know you will enjoy the surprise and delight offered by each meal, however we also understand that some individuals may have dietary restrictions. While we can’t guarantee that we can honor every request, we do promise to do our best. If you have additional questions about the dinners please see the FAQs about our Farm Table Dinner series or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
