Casper Fry's chefs are briefly exiting their familiar abode for the Swine Dining event.

Anyone who's ever felt that the farm-fresh eggs, milk and meat available at organic grocery stores still don't hit quite close enough to home should consider attending an upcoming event hosted by local restaurant Casper Fry, dubbed "Swine Dining."

For this special occasion, the chefs behind the southern fusion eatery are venturing outside the doors of their south Perry home to deliver a dining experience that is, in the written words of Casper Fry co-owner Ben Poffenroth, "a farm to table six-course meal on the farm itself." The event takes place at local CasaCano Farms, located just off the Palouse Highway, on Monday, Aug. 22, at 6 pm.

Swine Dining will, fittingly, see a pig, raised this year on the host farm, pit-smoked and taking center stage as a recurring element in several of the dishes served. The courses include a collection of mouth-watering pork delicacies, from smoked pork shoulder to baby back ribs in apple barbecue sauce, as well as lighter fare such as a tomato salad with vinaigrette, and grilled romano beans. Poffenroth says that most ingredients present in the meal are sourced right from CasaCano Farms.

$75 buys one access to all six courses plus a cocktail, and covers tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Casper Fry. 

If there's ever a time to overeat and feel good about doing so, Swine Dining is it.
