Palm Beach Farm Hosts Annual Swank Table Dinner Series

Tickets are on sale for the events starting in November.

The Swank Table Dinner Series offers a captivating lineup of ten outdoor dining experiences set amidst the charm of the 20-acre Swank Specialty Produce Farm in Loxahatchee, 14311 North Rd. Kicking off on Sunday, Nov. 12, with a lively Fall Harvest Hoe Down, this series spotlights the cream of Florida’s crop, including farmers, ranchers, artisanal producers, micro-brewers, distillers and winemakers. Renowned chefs collaborate to craft an indulgent multi-course feast that accentuates the exceptional quality of these ingredients. Moreover, each Swank Table event contributes to a local charity, infusing every dining occasion with a more profound sense of purpose.

Each evening starts with a refreshing welcome cocktail provided by UNA Vodka and Miami Club Rum and a delightful amuse-bouche to tantalize the taste buds. Following this, guests will indulge in a curated selection of canapés, showcasing four distinct appetizers skillfully crafted by our featured chefs and thoughtfully paired with sparkling beverages. The night’s highlight arrives with a five-course plated dinner set beneath the rustic charm of Swank’s pole barn. To enhance the culinary experience, Sommelier Jon Wine meticulously selects a range of wines to perfectly complement each dish, while local craft brewers offer a delightful assortment of specialty beers. Those who wish to explore the farm can take a guided tour of the hydroponic grow houses led by Darrin Swank or take a leisurely stroll through the fields to witness the farm in action.

This season’s Swank culinary journey will feature Jon Sarmiento as the lead chef liaison. Sarmiento has been an integral part of the Swank chef team for three years, and his extensive experience both on and off the farm, with stints at esteemed establishments like Cholo Soy and Palm Beach Meats, makes him a valuable addition.

Swank Table will also present a dynamic lineup of new participating chefs this season. South Florida’s very own Carlos Garcia of Leku, Brian Nasajon from Beaker & Gray, Akino West of Rosie’s, Chef Moon of Sushi by Bou, Johnny Demartini representing Ravish, Huy Hoang from Le Colonial, Warren’s culinary talent Jen Knox, and the renowned Antonio Bachour will all grace our events with their culinary artistry.

To celebrate Florida’s vibrant agricultural heritage amidst the picturesque landscapes of Loxahatchee, Swank Specialty Produce is launching its abundant Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 14. This complimentary market will be a weekly event held every Saturday through May, running from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It promises an enticing array of farm-fresh produce, including lettuce, vegetables, herbs, and enchanting wildflower bouquets, all sourced from Swank Farm.

Visitors to the market can revel in live music and explore a diverse range of exceptional products offered by 25 local vendors. Shopping is a delightful experience, sheltered within Swank Farm’s spacious 8,500 square-foot open-air pole barn, ensuring a comfortable visit regardless of the weather. Plus, free and convenient parking is readily available.

Whether shoppers seek to stock up for the week, relish a delightful breakfast sandwich, or savor a cup of coffee with a pastry, there’s something to delight every palate at this vibrant Farmers Market.

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
