Tribeca’s David Bouley will team with the staff of Next Door by Wegmans to create an innovative dinner at the Wegmans Orchard

Rochester, NY, 2015-7-3 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tribeca restaurateur David Bouley will team with the staff of Next Door by Wegmans to create an innovative dinner at the Wegmans Orchard. The dinner will feature an insightful talk on “The Power of Food as Medicine” led by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD. Dr. Hyman is a nine-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, the Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and the founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center.

Guests will enjoy an hors d’oeuvre and sparkling wine reception and a four-course dinner. Live jazz will be provided by the David Detweiler Trio.

Dr. Hyman’s inspiration is a Thomas Edison quote: “The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” “We have reached that time when the doctors will be chefs and the chefs will be doctors,” says Hyman. “The work that David Bouley and I do is the same work. Providing nourishment, healing and using food as our medicine.”

The Wegmans Organic Orchard is located one mile south of the Wegmans Organic Farm and had its first “on the way to organic” growing season in 2014. Spanning 168 acres, the orchard blooms with apples, table grapes, peaches, Asian pears, wheat, flowers, an assortment of vegetables, hay fields, and an apiary. Harvests from the orchard labeled “on the way to organic” are grown using organic practices in soil that is currently in transition, pending organic certification in summer 2016. Wegmans purchased the property in 2014; it was formerly the site of Miller’s Nurseries. An extension of Wegmans Organic Farm, the Orchard will help Wegmans learn the best methods for growing organic fruit in the northeast in order to share that information with its grower partners.
