Dinner in a Crop Circle at Enright Cattle Company


After years of watching X-Files and being addicted to sci-fi shows, never did I imagine that I would be dining in a crop circle. This bucket list experience was finally checked off as my foodie partner-in-crime aka my fiancée and I were invited to attend a unique event last night hosted by Kara and Darold Enright of Enright Cattle Company at their family-owned farm in Tweed, Ontario. If you haven't heard of them or had the pleasure of tasting their quality meat, then we'll have to rectify that asap! Quite a few Kingston restaurants incorporate Enright beef into their menus such as Pan Chancho, Chez Piggy, Olivea, and more, so no need to worry or Google the nearest shop.

And if there's one thing you need to know it's that,

"Enright truly prides themselves on raising the best quality product possible while maintaining exceptional animal welfare practices, making environmentally conscious decisions and building a sustainable business in agriculture. All animals on the farm are raised on a natural, all-vegetable diet without the use of artificial hormones."

That is truly amazing. With that in mind, the evening was nothing but exceptional (weather included) featuring a delicious 3-course meal, live entertainment, a fashion show and of course a family affair with all hands on deck. The menu of the event was crafted by none other than local chef Clark Day of Bayview Farm as his chefs Francois Drolet and Will Arnaud were onsite cooking up a storm over an open fire.

As we made our way into the crop circle, we had the opportunity to sample tasty delicacies of summer sausage from charcuterie boards that paired with pickles and freshly made focaccia bread. My oh my was I in heaven and dinner hadn't even started. As we strolled around the circle saying hi to the vendors, my drink of choice was a Huff Estate rosé to cool off as the sun beamed its rays down (not complaining but it was slightly warm). Along with local wines, the fabulous Laura of Mackinnon Brewery was also onsite pouring craft beers.

DINNER IS SERVED

As we were seated at our table with the lovely Heidi Bergeron of Fête Beach Boutique (one of many side ventures!) and her hubby along with Kingston Strategic Designer Brian Dodo and his wife across from us, the evening was filled with conversation and good food. We couldn't have asked for better company. The best part was that the board we ate on was also our departing gifts to take home! Every detail was accounted for, the hay bale seating covered in quilted blankets to the handpicked flowers set on each table.

MAIN

This perfection of a main consisted of a curried potato salad with Gunning's sweet corn slathered in melted butter and grilled Enright ribeye - paired with Huff Estates 2016 Cabernet Franc. Let's just say that we'll be recreating this meal at home!

DESSERT

This dessert was the topper of the evening as it showcased the perfect combination of seasonal summer eats. This Ontario peach and Wilson's blueberry crumble simpled melted in your mouth.

With tummies satisfied, not only did guests enjoy a great ambiance but between courses, we also were able to admire the craftsmanship of beautiful farm-to-fashion leather goods including handbags and wallets that were showcased with lovely linen clothing from Fête Beach Boutique, styled by local stylist, Jesse of Closett Candyy.

Produced by Enright Cattle Company and designed by Canadian Artisan James M. Brooks, these beauties are stunning, hella soft and best of all, LOCAL!

In summary, the dinner in a crop circle experience by Enright Cattle was filled with such joy as we saw familiar faces, met new ones, enjoyed delicious food and were able to see a family come together to host a beautiful event on their farm. But it was also a moment to celebrate the culinary, fashion and musical arts in the community which was even more rewarding to be in attendance.
