Farm-to-Chef Week is open to all restaurants and food-service businesses in the state. It invites participants to create a special Farm-to-Chef menu that showcases Connecticut Grown ingredients and beverages. This promotion is an initiative of the department’s Farm-to-Chef Program, which connects farmers and producers of Connecticut Grown products with chefs and other culinary professionals.
Over the years diverse Farm-to-Chef menus have been offered at multi-course farm dinners, food trucks, restaurants, coffee shops, school cafeterias, and ice cream parlors, among others. Featured Connecticut Grown ingredients have included produce, herbs, meats, seafood, dairy, maple, honey, and more.
