IN THE PILOT, Megan and Jim visit the West Windsor Farmers Market to shop for the ingredients for a farm-to-table meal at Tre Piani Restaurant. Megan takes some side trips to Chia-Sin Farm, Stults Farm and Terhune Orchards, then stops off at Cherry Grove Farm to see how cheese is made. The program culminates with 50 happy guests enjoying the delicious meal prepared by chef Jim, who has graciously shared his recipes with us. Just click below and start cooking!
A huge heartfelt thank you goes to Jim Weaver, chef and owner of Tre Piani; and to the West Windsor Community Farmers Market – specifically to Chris Cirkus, Beth Feehan, the board of trustees, the farmers and the vendors; and to our generous supporters and everyone who helped along the way. This video was possible because of the individuals who support the farms and farming in the Garden State.
