Former Resident Creates Feast From Fallon's Food Farms

Posted: Updated:

You may be surprised at what kind of food the City of Fallon has to offer.

"The great purples, the reds, the green they're all local."

And you might be hard-pressed to find someone more passionate about locally grown food - and he's not even from here.

"You literally are picking from the fields and cooking that day. There's eggplant, there's beef..."

Chef Ryan Scott owns two restaurants called Market and Rye in San Francisco - and his own catering business.

But he's here in northern Nevada where he first started as an intern at the Eldorado.

He's scoping out home grown goods. "You have local beef at a $1.14 a pound. That's phenomenal."

He's about to turn food from Fallon into a feast. "Homemade sausage, braised beef, homemade baked potatoes with rosemary picked from the garden."

Chef Scott is taking this year's Tractors and Truffles event to new mouth watering levels.

"We're making homemade ice cream for dessert. We're literally milking the cow and turning around and spinning it into ice cream in just seconds."

Don't let the desert of northern Nevada fool you. "We're feeding lines from the snow coming in the hills. The heat's not that bad."

Ryan says it's the ranchers and farmers who've made the most of the land.

"The naval base is out there, 40,000 out there is a farming and agriculture hub."

Zucchini, squash, eggplant and their famous melons will be just a few of the crops in Ryan's playing field.

You have plenty of time to sign up for this years's event but keep in mind last year's event sold out.

The City of Fallon is putting on the September 14th event. It will also be filmed for the Livewell Network.
