A very special series of dinner events is coming to Space On Ryder Farm in Brewster NY. Taking place each month from June through August, SPACE’S annual Seasonal Suppers are a showcase for artistic talent and culinary talent as well.

Guests to this very special evening will take part in a wonderful and healthy dinner served outdoors on the farm.

The June supper will feature a performance from musician Celissse Henderson.   Celisse is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer and spoken word artist. Her deep and varied career has seen her on stage, from the recent revival of Godspell at Circle in the Square Theater ,on television, in PBS’s The Electric Company30 RockRescue Meand more; and in concert, at venues ranging from the Beacon Theater, supporting Mariah Carey, Madison Square Garden supporting Kesha .  It should be a very special performance.

The June supper  will be a seasonally-curated menu from chef Rebecca Newman.  Ms. Newman is a currently a pastry chef and she has previously worked as the Executive Pastry Chef at Northern Spy Food Company, and in the pastry departments at The Waverly Inn, Barbuto, and l’apicio.  This promises to be an intimate evening of food and art celebrating the height of the Hudson Valley’s summer harvest This is a farm dinner experience you will remember long after you leave this special venue.   Menu items planned include many healthy and locally sourced items such as beet salad, cavatelli, roasted radishes, fire roasted chicken and concluding with a delicious sounding Yogurt Semifreddo.  It sounds delicious!

The entire event is held outdoors under the summer sky at the beautiful Ryder Farm located on the Brewster/North Salem border.
