Farmhouse Owner and Executive Chef Rich Mead is pleased to host an evening of unforgettable food and great company in celebration of National Oyster Day on Monday, August 5 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Benefitting Bracken’s Kitchen, a non-profit organization that helps nourish the hungry in Orange County, the special event will feature an exclusive menu spotlighting fresh, shucked and grilled oysters from Clausen Oysters to be enjoyed al fresco, amongst the olive trees in Farmhouse’s picturesque garden setting.

Orange County’s most renowned Fishmonger, Paddy Glennon, is a partner of the Oregon-based oyster farm, Clausen Oysters which specializes in responsibly sourced, large style, single seed and cocktail style oysters harvested in Coos Bay.

Each $60 ticket grants unlimited servings of oysters, either shucked with Weiser Farms melon mignonette and cocktail sauce, fried with roast garlic tartar sauce, grilled with a variety of condiments including garlic butter and pickled Fresno chiles or grilled in the shell with barbecue sauce. The full buffet-style menu presents additional barbecued favorites including bratwurst from Electric City Butcher with whole grain mustard and caramelized onions and grilled Carolina Style Mustard Barbecue Chicken from Autonomy Farms in addition to Chef Mead’s famous seasonal sides loaded with the freshest local veggies. Toast to National Oyster Day with craft brews from Costa Mesa-based Gunwhale Ales and enjoy refreshing sips from Blinking Owl Distillery, located in Santa Ana. Anthony Laborin, head of Cocktail R&D at Farmhouse will prepare a selection of his non-alcoholic Counterfeit Cocktails to perfectly complement Chef Mead’s menu.

Meet and mingle with the real stars of the evening, the local food and drink artisans and members of the community who made the special dinner possible. The guest list for the one-of-a-kind event is ever evolving. Set to attend along with Chef Rich Mead is Bill Bracken from Bracken’s Kitchen, Brian and Robin Christenson of Blinking Owl Distillery, Justin Miller, Robert Fitzgerald and J.T. Wallace of Gunwhale Ales, Paddy Glennon of Superior Seafood and Clausen Oysters and many more.
