On June 20, 2014 at 7pm, the Center for Ageless Living will celebrate its the eighth annual Field to Food event, “What’s all the Buzz About”, on its campus at 3216 Hwy. 47 South, Los Lunas. “This year the menu is based on Honey, harvested here on the campus and by bee keepers in the Valencia County area” states Suzette Lindemuth, Director of the Center for Ageless Living. “The Field to Food event is about honoring local foods that are produced within a 100 mile radius of the Center. We believe that local foods and healthy eating habits are one of the main factors to successful aging”

Menu items include: Honey Lemon Scented Goat Cheese served on Lavosh, Borscht with Honey Crème Fraiche, Garden Fresh Salad served with Honey Mustard dressing, Rice Noodles with fresh greens & vegetables served with a Honey Hot Sour Sauce, “BeeBee” Q Beef and Honey Jack Chicken on top Velvet Risotto, Creamy Honey Parsnip Pasta and a Honey Horchata Tres Leché Cake for dessert. Complimentary Fresh Herbal Iced Tea and a variety of local wines produced by Black’s Smuggler Winery, Camino Real Winery and Milagro Vineyards will be offered.

“This event focuses on eating well to age well.” comments Lindemuth, “Proceeds from the event go to support the Field to Food Project, which grows and distributes fresh produce to home-bound elders in Valencia County.” “What’s All the Buzz About” tickets are $45.00 per person or two for $80, and can be purchased at the Center for Ageless Living or at www.growageless.com.
