Each month, Demeters Steakhouse presents a new four-course menu featuring a variety of local vendors, New England spirits and sustainable ingredients. It’s called Dining in Action, and it’s our way of celebrating the Seacoast’s unique food culture. Here’s a look at Dining in Action for September 2016.

This Month’s Vendors

This September, we’re featuring pork from our friends at Short Creek Farm in Northwood, NH. Founded by friends Jeff Backer and Dave Viola, Short Creek Farm believes in food that fosters “a sense of place,” raising pastured pork, grass fed beef and heirloom vegetables using ecologically conscientious methods. Short Creek sausages and products are made in house using mostly ingredients that are grown on the farm.
