Taste and Travel - Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie

The date for the Cascine Orsine Harvest Party was scheduled for 27 november 2015. Considering the proximity to Thanksgiving, I decided to do a Thanksgiving themed harvest party. After all, Thanksgiving is the original American harvest party, started as a holiday to give thanks for the good harvest.
Avendo fissato la data della festa il 27 novembre, mi é sembrata un’ottima occasione celebrare anche il Thanksgiving! (La versione americana ha origini nel 1621 quando i ‘pilgrims’ a Massachusetts hanno celebrato il raccolto…).

I decided to divided the event into two parts, the first included a tour of the main compound of Cascine Orsine plus the harvesting of their biodynamic vegetables.
Ho deciso di organizzare l’evento in due momenti. Tour de la cascina biodinamica con raccolta di verdure e poi la preparazione di pumpkin pie mono porzioni (ed altre pietanze).

Followed by Thanksgiving Dinner at Cascina Pirola using the fresh biodynamic ingredients from Cascine Orsine.
Successivamente abbiamo preparato la cena vera e propria di Thanksgiving utilizzando i prodotti delle cascine.

Vanusa, my new friend and private chef with 14+ years of experience and I developed the menu together. For me it was important that everyone including our friends even those with ‘specific’ dietary needs had delicious and nutritious things to eat.
Io e la mia amica Vanusa, una chef privata che organizza cene e feste da oltre 14 anni, abbiamo preparato il menu insieme. Ci tentevo ad assicurare piatti gustosi anche ad amici vegani e celiaci.
