Special Events at The Match Point Cafe

Dinner at the Club with Elizabeth Inman - Saturday, September 29th

September’s guest speaker is Elizabeth Inman, entrepreneur and owner of Purple Adobe Lavender Farm. Established in 2004, the farm is tucked away in the beautiful Chama River Valley of Abiquiu, New Mexico, about an hour north of Santa Fe. The farm is most famously known for its eponymous, organically grown lavender, which produces a higher quality oil due to the unique environment and high altitude of Northern New Mexico. Beyond the farm, Elizabeth is engaged in additional enterprises, including a bath and body skincare line (Belle Essence). She is also the author of several books. Chef Tim Lopez will prepare the dinner. A four course meal will be served, beginning with baked Portobello mushroom with goat cheese, tomato bruschetta, and a balsamic glaze for the appetizer. An arugula, shaved fennel, and fig salad will follow, with raspberry vinaigrette. For the main course, attendees will have the option of braised lamb chop or roasted butternut squash, served with caramelized mint apples, garlic buttered green beans, and parmesan potato cakes. To finish the evening, a lemon lime tart. The dinner is $29 per person. Beer and wine are extra. Reservations are required. Call the club and reserve your spot today!
