Always artistic and entertaining, Chef Sammy D is excited to explore Las Vegas’ farmers market for the highest quality local goods to inspire an original and creative dinner.

In preparation of the inaugural “Farm to Strip” dinner, Chef Sammy D will hold a cooking demonstration at Downtown3rd Farmers Market in Downtown Las Vegas on Friday, May 11, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. Patrons can get an idea of what to expect from this special monthly menu, as well as enjoy Chef Sammy’s loveable personality and unique twists on cooking techniques.

The “Farm to Strip” dinner will be held each month with just one seating on Friday and Saturday evening for one lucky group of six to eight people. The menu will be paired with wine for each course. Courses are yet determined…chef just isn’t sure what fresh and fun things he’ll find at the market! One thing is certain, Chef Sammy D and the staff at FIRST will make a creative and delicious dinner foodies will remember season after season.
