For years, Chef Jodi Janisse Kanzenbach of Cafe Soeurette in West Bend was known for her annual farm dinners, which showcased the bountiful produce available each year during harvest season.  However, when she closed Cafe Soeurette in 2018 to open Precinct Tap + Table, the highly anticipated farm dinners fell to the wayside.

But now, after a five-year hiatus, Kanzenbach and her team are gearing up to bring back the Dinner on the Farm experience under the Precinct Tap + Table moniker.

This year's Dinner on the Farm will take place on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 3 p.m. (dinner served at 4 p.m.) at Wittes Vegetable Market, 2313 County Hwy NN in West Bend.  The event will take place rain or shine.

On the menu

The menu for the dinner will include an amuse bouche to welcome guests, followed by four courses highlighting the best of the season. Beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be available to accompany.

  1. Hungarian Mushroom Soup: A mix of wild mushrooms flavored with smoked paprika, dill, and lemon and finished with slices of seared Old Germantown Hungarian sausage.
  2. Chorizo sope: Housemade lamb chorizo, squash sope, chimichurri, pickled watermelon rind pico, cilantro yogurt
  3. Bacon-wrapped cider-glazed pork loin: Served with vanilla pickled beets, parsnip and brie creme moulee and shaved brussels sprout salad
  4. Deconstructed pumpkin pie: Pumpkin custard with peppernut cookie crumble, dulce de leche, cinnamon whip and toasted coconut

Tickets are $115 per person and include four courses, beer provided by Old Germantown, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Live music will accompany your meal.
