To the delight of history enthusiasts and food and wine lovers throughout the region, Friends of Sutter’s Fort is proud to present a unique culinary experience — Feast at the Fort — on Saturday evening, Sept. 21.

Now part of the city-wide Farm-to-Fork effort, this is the fourth year for this signature event held at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP), 2701 L St. in Sacramento. With KFBK news anchor Kitty O’Neal is celebrity emcee for the evening, Feast at the Fort guests will enjoy a delicious four-course, sit-down dinner prepared by Sacramento’s top chefs amid a beautiful evening setting inside the historic walls of Sutter’s Fort SHP.

As a special treat — and given John Sutter imported Mexican chocolate for enjoyment at the fort – the theme for the event this year is cooking with chocolate.

Guests will delight in a menu of newly-created and history-inspired recipes that showcase chocolate and also incorporate vibrant local ingredients.

A few of the chocolate-inspired menu items — both savory and sweet — include: flatbreads with artisan cheese drizzled with chocolate balsamic vinegar; duck mole tacos with asadero cheese served with salt and honey cured tomato; and a delightful cocoa- and chili-rubbed pork, to name a few.

Feast at the Fort guests will be treated to scrumptious appetizers while enjoying local wine, beer and cider tastings provided by Bogle Vineyards, Boeger Winery, Clarksburg Wine Company, New Helvetia Brewing Co. and Two River Cider Company.

Guests will also have the unique opportunity to watch and interact with chefs as they prepare their culinary creations in period facilities such as outdoor fire pits or in the historic kitchens and on-site bakery.

The amazing dishes will be created by chefs from popular restaurants such as Hock Farm Craft and Provisions, Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Co., Mulvaney’s B&L, Ten22 Restaurant and served family style.

To finish off the meal, guests will enjoy a delicious dessert created by Café Vinoteca and served with port wine provided by Ficklin-Wilcox: Wine Tasting Room & Kitchen Goods.

With an international flair representative of the types of music enjoyed by emigrants who first came to Sutter’s Fort, live acoustic music will entertain guests and set a lively and festive mood throughout the culinary experience and silent auction.

Feast at the Fort begins at 6:30 p.m. with dinner served at 7:30 p.m.
