The Amazing Grace Farmer-Chef Dinner Series cooks up local produce, with delicious results

Any fly lucky enough to have parked himself on the wall last Monday evening at Grenache would have heard tell of such fine things as braised fennel and corn quiche, butter-poached lobster tail and white-chocolate bread pudding. The occasion was the Amazing Grace Farmer-Chef Dinner Series, at which departing chef Steve Scherrer and sous-chef Joshua Mitchell prepared an outstanding meal highlighting the produce of Terra Bella Farm.

The last event this season will be on October 15 at Shiitake, where chef Thom Zoog will feature vegetables and fruits harvested from the fields and orchards of Bellews Creek. The cost is $50 per person (plus wine, gratuity and tax), and half of the proceeds helps support the Missouri Chef's Collaborative. A cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres begins at 6 p.m, and the first course is served at 7 p.m. Call the restaurant at 314-725-4334 for a reservation, and specify the vegetarian or non-vegetarian option. As for the fly, well, he'll have to shift for himself.
