TATAMAGOUCHE – Here on the North Shore of Nova Scotia, we tend to celebrate the fleeting warmth and delights of summer. 

Farmers are hard at work making the most of the growing season, to bring some of the best quality food around to our tables. With this in mind, Tatamagouche Centre is hosting a “Summertime and the Living is Tasty” Farm to Table meal, followed by a musical concert by P.E.I. musician, poet, and performer Tanya Davis.

The farm to table meal will begin at the centre at 6 p.m. on July 16. It will highlight seasonal flavours of the local area. The menu will feature a gathered salad of local greens with blueberry vinaigrette, and Chateaubriand with roasted baby potatoes and savoury vegetables, followed by a traditional blueberry crisp topped with rich whipped cream. The ticket also includes a complimentary sampling of Tatamagouche Brewing Co. crafted beer or Jost Vineyards white or red wine. A vegetarian option is available by pre-arrangement.

Following the meal, attendees will move upstairs for an intimate evening concert with Davis. She has four albums, two books, numerous collaborations, and countless performances to her credit, and her videopoem, How to be Alone – a collaboration with filmmaker Andrea Dorfman – has had more than 8 million hits on YouTube, attracting international media and blogger attention, a publishing deal with Harper Collins, and new fans the world over.

Tickets are $40 per plate and must be purchased in advance. For more information or to buy tickets online, visit www.tatacentre.ca. Tickets can be purchased in Tatamagouche at the Tipperary Café, Foodland, the C.G. Fulton Pharmacy, or by calling Tatamagouche Centre at 902-657-2231.
