Nicky Farms: Raised by Ranchers. Coveted by Chefs.
Nicky USA 25th Anniversary Video
A Look At Where We Came From & Where We Are Today
Has it really been 25 years? Hard to believe. It seems like yesterday that owner & founder Geoff Latham was selling just rabbits out of the back of his Ford Escort to a few intrepid chefs that were the beginning of the Portland food revolution. Join us for a look at a little at Nicky's history and where we are today serving hundreds of great customers across the Pacific Northwest.
Many thanks to the chefs, purveyors and Nicky staff for their time in the making of this video. Huge thanks to Nolan Video Works for their generosity and professionalism - if you want Portland's best videographer look no further.
Nicky Farms-Lincoln 4th Annual Rabbit Dinner
Four Course Family-Style Dinner August 5th, 6:30pm
Food & Wine Best New Chef 2012 and author Jenn Louis, a long time Nicky USA favorite, is hosting the 4th annual Nicky Farms Rabbit Dinner at Lincoln Restaurant on Wednesday August 5th at 6:30pm. Along with husband and partner David Welch, Chef Louis has been a leading influence on the Portland dining scene with their restaurants, including Sunshine Tavern, and catering company Culinary Artistry. Now with her acclaimed new cookbook, Pasta By Hand, Chef Louis shares her passion for authentic Italian hand-shaped pastas (including gnocchi) and great local, seasonal products with the rest of the country.
The rabbit dinner celebrates a key point in Nicky history; rabbit was the first item owner Geoff Latham sold 25 years ago, and it also acknowledges the long-term relationship between Chef Louis and our company. Nicky USA now raises rabbits to supply our restaurant & retail customers at our very own Nicky Farms in Aurora, OR.
The dinner will be served family style and Chef Louis has created another stunning menu again this year:
Rabbit Liver Mousse & Butter Lettuce Panna Cotta
Grand Summer Vegetable Salad with Rabbit Saddle & Belly
Rabbit Tagine with Preserved Lemon & Green Olives
Carrot Cake (naturally!) with Cream Cheese Frosting & Meringue
Tickets are $65 (not including gratuity) and wine pairings are available for an additional fee. To make a reservation please call Lincoln Restaurant at (503) 288-6200. Check out their web site for more info lincolnpdx.com
