Locally Sourced, Biodynamic and Sustainable Menu Set For NYC Earth Day Luncheon at Delegates Dining Room in the United Nations Building


April 22 Buffet Luncheon is Open to Public; Reservations Required*

New York City, NY. – ARAMARK Executive Chef and Chefs Collaborative member, Dan Lopez, has created a locally sourced, sustainable and delicious prix-fixe menu for the April 22 Earth Day Luncheon being held at the Delegates Dining Room within the United Nations building on 46th Street. The event is one of 17 being hosted nationwide by Chefs Collaborative members to help educate restaurant-goers about the value of local ingredients and connect them with their food and its source.

“Through my membership with Chefs Collaborative,” said Chef Lopez, “I am able to work with remarkable groups that make it possible for me to create menus that feature sustainable and biodynamic food and beverage selections sourced within a 100-mile radius of the restaurant. Every day, you will find a locally sourced item on the menu at the Delegates Dining Room,” he said.

Chef Lopez’s Earth Day menu will include: Sautéed Local Spinach with Poached Tomato and Garlic, Fresh Cod with Crab & Corn Ragu in a Blood Orange Sauce and Cream of Parsnip and Celeriac Soup with Local Honey Lavender Goat Cheese. (A complete menu is attached.) Additionally, representatives from food and beverage suppliers, Hudson Valley Farmstead Cheese, Glynwood and Mendicino Wine Company, will be on hand to provide insights into the value of supporting local and biodynamic farming operations.

*The Earth Day Luncheon will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on April 22 and is $27.40 per person (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). Reservations for the Delegates Dining Room can be made by calling 212.963.7626. Space is limited.

The Earth Dinner program was launched in 2004 by Organic Valley Family of Farms with the idea that Earth Day deserved its own holiday meal, a festive gathering where people could re-forge their relationship with the planet and farmers that provide the food sustaining their bodies and bringing them together with family and friends. To seed the movement, Organic Valley joined forces with Boston-based Chefs Collaborative to host a series of Earth Dinners at some of the best loved restaurants in the U.S.
