Dishtory Dessert Potluck THIS Saturday 10/1!

flyerjpg

Share your favorite family dessert and its story!

Saturday, October 1, 7-9 PM

Raleigh City Farm

Every dish has a story.  What’s your Dishtory?

Do you have a favorite dessert that you love to make for your family or friends?  How about a dessert you ate growing up that is weird or delicious that you’d love to share?  Maybe a dish that generations of your family has made, and you’d love to tell us its story?  

Let us know what you’re bringing on our event page wall!

Join us for an evening on the farm to celebrate our best family dessert traditions and record them for posterity!  Bring your dish, and we’ll take your portrait with the dish and then (if you want!) we’ll record the story behind the dish in our Dishtory Story Booth.

We’ll have vintage inspired cocktails for sale that you can sip while we all sit down to a big dessert potluck with each other on the farm!
