The Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College will join together with Jamison Farm to present the third annual Ewe Are Special dinner on Saturday, September 29.
John and Sukey Jamison will open their picturesque 210-acre farm for an evening of friendship and culinary delights featuring locally grown and raised natural food prepared by regionally and nationally acclaimed chefs.
Chefs will include Greg Andrews of The Supper Club in Greensburg; Donato Coluccio of Donato’s in Pittsburgh; Anne Hutchinson of Hank’s Oyster Bar in Washington, D.C.; Rick Laskie of Parkhurst Dining Services at Saint Vincent College; Anne Quatrano of Bacchanalia in Atlanta, GA; and Douglas Singer of Singer’s Mostly Jewish Delicatessen in Washington, D.C.
The six course menu will feature Jamison Farm’s internationally renowned lamb products. Jamison Farm is one of the leading free-range lamb producers in the eastern U.S. and has been widely recognized for its natural and humane farming practices. Jamison lamb has been praised by award-winning chefs as “America’s Best” and ranked among the finest in the world by distinguished French chef Alain Ducasse in his book, Harvesting Excellence.
This year’s master of ceremonies is Chris Fennimore of QED Cooks. Mr. Fennimore’s endearing style and down-to-earth demeanor have made him a household name in Pittsburgh cooking circles and across the country. Nancy (Laney) Rogers Crozier and Daniel G. Crozier, sister and brother-in-law of the late Fred Rogers, are honorary event chairs.
This September’s event will begin with a tour of the Fred M. Rogers Center on the campus of Saint Vincent College and will continue with an exclusive, open-air dinner at the Jamisons’ farm in Latrobe. Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy wine and cheese pairings, entertainment and a silent auction during the cocktail hour.
