Classes and Events
April showers have given way to May flowers, and the Bradford pear trees are putting on quite a show. In the same way, a busy April has given way to a wonderful May, with some great events planned as well.

A small contingent of Acorn Farm folks (staff and customers) have just returned from an extraordinary trip to Italy's Amalfi coast - with countless stories to tell and pictures to share. Have a look at our Facebook page to see just where we were and what we saw!

The first event we have planned is A DAY IN MAY, taking place on SATURDAY, MAY 15th from 12noon until 3pm. You've heard that diamonds are a girl's best friend, well . . . we'll be showing why they should be EVERYONE's best friend . . . SWISS DIAMOND, that is! The superior non-stick finish is the absolute best we've ever tried, and we think we've tried 'em all! They never chip or flake, and if you treat them right, they'll be right at home in your kitchen for a very long time! Rumor has it that we'll be making and providing samples of a fabulous dish we learned to prepare in Italy. It's a dish that's best prepared in a high-performance, non-stick pan like Swiss Diamond. Come in and see just how well it performs! You'll have a taste of Paccheri - a wonderful pasta with a cheesy filling, browned and served hot and delicious! We'll pass along the recipe as well.

Get it while it's hot!  Saturday is the last day you can take advantage of our VITAMIX sale -- $50 OFF our price on any of our VITAMIX machines!  That means a full $150 OFF the MSRP! Turn fresh fruits and vegetables into delicious, soups, smoothies, beverages, sorbets, and more at just the touch of a button!  These machines are made in America and built to last!

And now, a word about our remaining classes! We've got a fun grill class coming up on July 6th that still has a few spots, due to it falling just after a holiday weekend. Do consider taking this class, as it is full of, well, FUN food. Take a look at the full description below.

We have also added a class to the summer schedule. Our July 20th BRAZILIAN CLASS filled so quickly and had such a long wait list, that we opened up the exact same class on July 19th! Again, see the description below and call us at 248-684-1373 right away!

Just the aroma of something cooking on the grill evokes a flurry of childhood memories and some of the fun food of our youth! We're going to explore some of those great foods with a little more grown-up twist!  Take a look at this simple but sophisticated menu:
  • Toas-tite Campfire Sandwiches  - Three different delights for the gourmand to enjoy!
  • BBQ Pulled Pork on Cheddar & Scallion Cornbread
  • Tuna Melts with Havarti
  • Roast Beef with Mustard & Beer-Braised Onions on a Hoagie Roll
  • Grilled Carrot Salad - with cauliflower and french beans in a Tarragon Brown Butter Vinaigrette.
  • Mini Red Hasselback Potatoes - delicious potatoes, cut into a fan of sorts, topped with goat cheese, bacon & roasted garlic and and cooked until crisp on the outside, tender on the inside.  
  • Cast Iron Trout - prepared to the perfection that only cast iron can produce.  We'll finish it with a little pancetta and tomato sauce.
  • Campfire S'Mores - Oh, yes!   We'll let Chef Grostick do his gourmet spin on these.  Don't expect the same S'mores you had around your troop's campfire.
Tuesday, July 19 - 7:00 - 8:30pm - $40 - This new session just added!
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 - 7:00 - 8:30pm - $40 - FULL!

The Olympics are coming! The Olympics are coming! While not many of us are going to be traveling to Brazil to watch the beloved games, we'd like to honor the host country with a fabulous spread of Brazilian favorites, full of bright and bold flavors.  
  • Brazilian Lemonade - Start the evening cooling off with a simple Brazilian lemonade.  Sweet, fresh, and made with, surprisingly enough, limes!
  • Salada de Couve com Manga - A salad with some great brazilian staples - mango and kale, with the crunch of pine nuts
  • Frango Churrasco - Chicken thighs, bathed in a perfectly seasoned marinade with garlic, lemon, and coriander, then skewered and grilled to a heavenly crispness.
  • Brazilian Pork Ribs - Toto, we're not in Kansas City anymore. Enjoy a distinctively different Brazilian sauce with soy, lime and parsley, a good dose of garlic and some unexpected herbs.  A slow-simmer turns these into juicy moist ribs before they're finished on the grill for a fantastic char. You're about to experience a new "go-to" rib recipe for your repertoire! 
  • Grilled Flank Steak with Root Vegetable Chips & Brazilian-Style Chimichurri - Enjoy some of the same flavors you'd find in the Caribbean islands but without the heat. The marinade carries the aroma of cumin, coriander, and lime and the chimichurri adds a beautiful freshness to the dish. Add a little crunch with the chips to finish it off and you'll be ready to fly the Brazilian flag.
  • Pudim - a lovely custard-like flan served with glazed and grilled pineapple and other tropical delights!
