Chefs Thomas Ciszak of Chakra, Bobby Varua of Blue Morel and Todd Villani of Terre à Terre will join forces in the Chakra kitchen to celebrate Earth Day on 4/22 at 6:30PM. Jointly, they’ll create a five-course wine-paired menu and a “From the Farm” hors-d’oeuvres ‘station’ incorporating ingredients from Bracco Farms. As an extra perk to the amazing menu, Anthony Bracco of Bracco Farms will be onsite to challenge the chefs to prepare a dish using ingredients picked fresh from his farm that day.
