Cornman Farms Sustainable Dining Event

Last month Zingerman’s Cornman Farms and Detroit Cultivated hosted Sustainable Entertaining: The Fall Seasonal Dinner at Cornman Farms. The dinner was a collaboration between Cornman Farms Chef Kieron Hales and author Lindsay-Jean Hard at the beautiful 1834 Greek Revival farmhouse. The result was a sustainable, locally-sourced menu inspired by Hard’s newly launched cookbook, Cooking with Scraps.

The cookbook contains a collection of 85 delicious zero waste recipes to utilize each part of the ingredients - including the often discarded scraps! The sustainable theme of the dinner extended beyond the menu into the décor - curated and designed by Haley Lertola of Detroit Cultivated, a local Detroit event planner who specializes in chic and sustainable events.

Haley of Detroit Cultivated curated an stunning selection of sustainable and local elements to compliment the zero waste dining experience. Featured at the dinner was Loden Floral, an Ohio florist who created an elegant selection of seasonal floral arrangements that extended well beyond flowers into decorative heirloom pumpkins, gourds and dried grasses local to Michigan.

Rosemarine Textiles black walnut dyed cotton gauze napkins and six yard silk chiffon table runners adorned the tablescape to tie the autumnal palette together. Liz of Jade Social created the menu design on Silk & Willow’s handmade recycled cotton paper with deckled edging. The Michigan-based Event Theory provided the flatware for the table and Event Source provided the dinnerware. Marina Pia Goldi’s photography captured the beautifully styled event. I am so grateful to have had Rosemarine Textiles be a part of such a lovely and sustainability oriented dinner.
