Farm to Table Dinner comprises 100 percent Oklahoma products


Oklahoma-grown radishes are good. They're even better with Oklahoma-made goat cheese, Oklahoma-raised pork belly and Oklahoma-produced wine.

On Saturday, a dinner made up entirely of food grown, raised or produced by Oklahomans takes place at the Akdar Shrine Temple. Amanda Simcoe, Dan Potter and Jennifer Spears will be preparing what Simcoe calls a five-star meal.

It's a dinner that could make extreme foodies cheer. It's a dinner made for locavores, a word that's tossed around sometimes to the point of exhaustion among gourmets. But in this case the word, which describes people who eat locally grown food, perfectly describes the target.

Tickets are still available.

  • Radish tart

  • Moroccan carrot patties with Tunisian harisa sauce
