Heyday Farm Dinner with Guest Chef Spencer Coplan

Heyday Farm Dinner with Guest Chef Spencer Coplan

Heyday Farm Dinner with Guest Chef Spencer Coplan

Enjoy a special evening out at Heyday Farm. Join your fellow local food lovers in the historic farmhouse and share a fall family style feast of fresh food featuring foraged and farmed offerings prepared by Bainbridge Island’s own Spencer Coplan.

Seattle Met Next Hot Chefs Profile: Coplan has impressed more mentors and packed more experience into his 25 years than many twice his age—starting with a stint at a Bainbridge restaurant when he was just 15. From there he spent a summer cranking covers at Etta’s (“traumatizing”), then learned proper mise en place at Ventana, worked up to sous chef at Michael Mina’s artful RN74, and helped Derek Ronspies open the admirable Cochon. He did drop out of culinary school, but for Coplan—who started watching Julia Child when he was two—life has been culinary school. In his current gig at Lark he’s soaking up the seasoned wisdom of Sundstrom and an uncommonly gifted trio of sous chefs—but Coplan has dreams all his own. “Last week I was on a dive-bar-with-good-Chinese kick,” he mused. “You know, well-executed kung pao chicken.” Make that precise and beautifully plated kung pao chicken, say bosses past and present.

What: Farm Dinner with Guest Chef Spencer Coplan
When: Saturday, November 7, 6 p.m.
Where: Heyday Farm, 4370 Old Mill Road NE
Price: $110 + tax
