Our first Fall Community Dinner was on Wednesday, October 2nd at 6:00 and we went to Persia! Guest chef Lily Starbuck teamed up with Lighthouse Works Fellow Armen Davoudian to create a wonderful dinner for us!
Lily Starbuck is a chef and cheesemaker from Brooklyn, NY, currently residing in Ireland. She is a graduate of the Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, where she discovered her passion for dairy farming and sustainable food practices. Lily will soon be moving to Wales to work on the Holden Dairy Farm, making their world-renowned Hafod cheddar from a gorgeous herd of Ayrshire cows.
Armen Davoudian grew up in Isfahan, Iran and lives in the Bay Area, where he’s pursuing a PhD in English at Stanford University. His poems and translations from Persian have appeared or are forthcoming in AGNI, The Sewanee Review, The Yale Review and elsewhere. His work has been supported by scholarships from Bread Loaf, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley, and the Millay Colony. At Lighthouse Works, he will be working on two projects: a first book of poems, and selected translations of Rumi.
Everyone enjoyed a unique and delicious dinner created by these creative cooks from diverse geographies who have come together on Fishers!
(This dinner includes many GF, DF, and Vegan options.)
