This month, in addition to the sunny days, blossoming trees and fresh spring greens, there's one more seasonal milestone to celebrate -- Sabor de Abril. For the entire month of April, Kitchen Table Advisors has paired four farms from our newest cohort with four equally amazing sustainably-focused, Mexican-oriented restaurants. Each week these pioneer chefs will be featuring one of our clients in their specialty tacos. All of our participating restaurants will donate a portion of proceeds from this event to support our efforts to fuel the economic viability of these talented and hard-working farmers and ranchers. Tacos are on the menu this month!
Sabor de Abril is the second iteration of this delicious annual fundraiser. Last year, we collaborated with our farmers and chefs to feature Italian pizza via Sapore di Marzo. After Sapore, we made the decision to focus on a new type of cuisine in order to highlight the versatility and diversity of both the clients we work with and our restaurant partners. From there, we spent a lot of time thinking about what foods represent the demographics of the clients we serve, the type of food that we personally love to eat and the types of stories that we are focused on telling this year. Tacos embodied all of those objectives. By participating in Sabor, people can get to know the farms that are stewarding the land in ways that keep our food system healthy, in addition to the restaurants that are supporting these farms by purchasing their products and creating dishes that form the centerpieces of our dining experiences.
Each week of April presents a different farmer-chef collaboration on tacos. Simply order the specialty taco on the menu when you visit any of our restaurant partners during their featured week. Taco ingredients have been purchased direct from our farmers.
