To reflect the fête’s rustic, organic ambiance, Patina Catering worked closely with local foragers and farmers to create an agriculturally driven menu fit for a gourmand. “Our vision for this year’s dinner extends beyond the plate; it begins with an intention to maintain the quality and integrity of the ingredients we have sourced from the farmers and foragers we rely on as partners and friends,” says Splichal. “As we honor the source, we pay homage to a new concept of luxury—we celebrate the true elegance of nature.”

First Course: Heirloom Beets

Pistachio–goat cheese “bonbons,” blood oranges, preserved lemon, roasted eggplant puree, baby fennel confit, lolla rossa, black olive “soil,” and tangelo vinaigrette.
