Al Fresco Dinner and Dancing to Raise funds for Knight Foundry Restoration
Saturday, September 23 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wine on 49 which represents Sutter Creek’s wineries will host a gala dinner complete with live music and dancing. The dinner benefits the restoration efforts for the Knight Foundry.
As part of Amador County’s industrial heritage, the foundry tells the story of how local industry created and contributed to the viability of the Mother Lode.
From precision equipment for hard-rock gold mines, the lights of San Francisco and the impulse turbine systems that powered many of the state’s hydroelectric plants, the Foundry helped build California.
As the last water-powered foundry and machine shop in America and one of the nation’s best preserved 19th-century industrial complexes it has been named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Places.
The meal will take place on locally handcrafted farm tables set in the middle of Eureka Street with the Knight Foundry as the backdrop. The five course meal is inspired by the cuisine of the Gold Rush days, focusing on the provisions available at that time, and foraged locally now.
Appetizers will be served in in the 'saloon' and will be followed with a family style dinner of botanical greens with local chevre and grilled figs, wild salmon, coal roasted vegetables, wood oven leg of lamb and open 'fired' chickens.
Tracey Berkner, sommelier and Taste Restaurant owner, will pair a sampling of wines with each course. Handmade pie and ice cream complete the dinner.
Americana band The Pine Street Ramblers will entertain. Hailing from the Sierra Nevada foothills, they are a four piece string band performing bluegrass, country, old-time and good old-fashion roots rock. Their live show is a raucous powerhouse that deftly showcases their songwriting prowess in the context of foot stompin' good times and remarkable collective instrumental chops.
