Last Sunday, Blue Sky Organic Farms hosted an employee and family brunch in our beautiful kitchen and dining area. Some of the featured fare included fresh duck and chicken eggs from our own birds.
The small event was coordinated in conjunction with FeedProjects.com and World Food Day (October 16). Blue Sky employees alone raised enough money for 1,454 meals for the hungry of the world. In total, FeedProjects.com donated 1.6 million meals!
Our man in charge of the brunch was RJ who catered every dish to the guest’s specific taste. “I added pan fried pancetta to coddled eggs and copious amounts of bacon to the frittata,” he said. “Canadian bacon went into the Eggs Benedict, using duck eggs.”
When RJ cooks, he usually starts with a basic recipe and then improvises based on what’s available and after assessing the guests’ likes and dislikes. He said, “I don’t stop until I think things are just right.”
Next year, Blue Sky hopes to make this a much bigger event in order to raise more for World Food Day … and of course, to showcase the talents of our chef!
