Lincoln Pasadena’s Farm-to-Table Dinner

Jul 14, 2015

Lincoln_Cafe_Pasadena_CA_1aAs many people know, Lincoln Pasadena is the second eating hub and gastronomic delight created by Christine Moore.

Her initial endeavor, Little Flower, was begun as a candy store and Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer and columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Jonathan Gold, has said…

Like most things worth having, Christine Moore’s sea salt caramels sting for a moment before dissolving into pure, buttery happiness. And I can’t begin to count the mornings I’ve slipped into her café for a quick pie crust cookie and ended up chatting until noon about the thermodynamics of marshmallows. (Little Flower, 2012, Prospect Park Books)

Savor the skills of Christine Moore, and Pamela Perkins, at “Lincoln Loves Muir Ranch” during a farm-to-table dinner on July 25th.

A wine tasting begins at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at the long table at 6 p.m.

The meal will be created with Muir Ranch garden vegetables with “generous support” from L.A. Specialty Produce.

Enjoy a locally grown and harvested, sustainable, plant-based supper, while supporting Muir Ranch student jobs! The dinner ticket is tax deductible and purchase helps fund the Ranch’s summer internship program.
