University Farm Circle invites you to join your UFC sisters in our cherished traditional Candlelight Dinner, “Candlelight at Home for the Holidays.” This year’s dinner will be different, but still allow us to gather in spirit to support students in need at UCD and to enjoy a delicious gourmet-quality meal in the process.
Dinner will be catered by Michelin-trained restaurateurs Michael and Cynthia Raub of Pannier Foods. Orders and choices are in the December 2020 newsletter (access to newsletter open only to paid members). Drive-through pickup will be in the afternoon at the Odd Fellows Lodge parking lot. Later, the delightful Albertson Duo will livestream a concert just for us from their Sacramento studio.
We request that you open your hearts this year and make an especially generous
donation of non-perishable food for the UCD Food Pantry when you pick up your dinners. As we are all aware, this has been a difficult year for many and food insecurity among students is a sad reality.
Reservation deadline: Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Our speaker for January is Professor Maria Marco from the Department of Food Science and Technology at UC Davis. She studies microorganisms and their relationships with food and health. Abstract: Fermented foods are currently the #1 health food trend. What are fermented foods exactly? What is
the hype all about? How are fermented foods different from probiotic foods? Based on what has been discovered about the human gut microbiota, how can we use the microbes in our diet to promote health? This talk will cover
these questions and address what remains to be done in this emerging area of microbiome science. Please join us for this informative talk.
