Farm to Table Supper Club: Part Deaux

Last Thursday night was our second incarnation of our farm to table supper club, this time hosted at our new friends, Randy and Carol Dupree‘s home.  I brought a shaved squash and zucchini salad (complete with a mountain of Sweet Grass Dairy Thomasville Tomme) and a Georgia Peach and Blackberry Crisp – recipes forthcoming!

If that doesn’t scream, “Southern Summer,” then I don’t know what does.  I got the peaches and blackberries from Lewis Produce Co. in Thomasville, and they were on point.

Jessica made cucumber mint margaritas that were AMAZING.  Maybe she’ll share the recipe?  ;)

I told you it was a mountain of Thomasville Tomme.  I’m okay with that.

This potato salad that Randy made had sunflower seeds in it.  Delicious!

We set out all the food, grabbed cocktails, and those who hadn’t been there got the tour.  Randy and Carol turned a warehouse in downtown Bainbridge into the coolest house ever.  Everywhere you look, there’s a creatively recycled or repurposed thingamajig, and every time you get the tour, you see something you missed last time.  It’s pretty much amazing.

Their dining room table was purchased at a consignment shop in West Palm Beach.  It was once someone’s foyer table.  If you can believe that.  And that chandelier came out of a dumpster.

This floor scale out of another old warehouse in town does duty on their back porch now as an outdoor dining table.

Randy and Carol are both talented metalworkers, and Carol showed us her latest plasma cutting project.

We finally came back inside for the main event.

Carol hand painted these little bags for farm to table utensil holders.  Naturally, the bee was my subtle place card. :)

It was an epic feast!  Squash in every salad-form you can imagine, burgers, farm-fresh corn – it was all delicious.

And to top it all off, the peach and blackberry crisp was pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.  The ice cream (not homemade – ooops) helped a lot!

Love farm to table eatin’ as much as we do?  If you’re in Bainbridge, come to the Firehouse on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. to find out how you can help us get a downtown farmers’ market going!  Anyone who has veggies to sell or who wants to be able to buy veggies downtown at a market is welcome!

    This is a great post to start a Monday with! I wonder if this is a building I saw near the cemetery (Oak City). I loved the landscaping and kept slowing down to see if it was an artist retreat or something. I could see a neon sign with the word cantina from the street. If it was their home, it is absolutely amazing!

    That may be the coolest house ever. Pretty sure I would have snuck a second round of dessert. Amazing!
