COMFORT TABLE CONCERT…a win win win for all

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 12.41.05 PM

This annual concert/party has become the must see/hear/taste event of the year. 25 professional musicians will gather… all in excellent voice, tuned instruments ready for the downbeat, and our wordsmith Douglas Skrief performing much-loved folk tales.

Be a part of this intimate gathering (we only sell 200 seats) and allow the music to wrap you in sound, allow the words to speak to your soul…feel the energy.  Every year, audiences leave with grateful hearts and big grins. Every year is a sell out. Every year musicians from all over our state come to Comfort freely giving their talents and time for a great cause…feeding people. Every year, generous host families house our performers allowing all proceeds, every dime, to go to The Comfort Table. Additional underwriters cover miscellaneous expenses.

High’s Cafe & Store, your main event sponsor, throws a big bash at the conclusion of the concert. Live music, beer, wine and great nosh – all complimentary as we continue to celebrate the evening’s many blessings. So, don’t delay. Purchase your tickets today at High’s. We can only accept cash or checks (made payable to The Comfort Table). $40 per ticket helps raise half of the annual budget for The Comfort Table. Your purchase is tax deductible.

Come see what small towns do best: we support each other, we support our worthwhile causes and we celebrate our community.

This really is just another delicious secret from Comfort! Shhh.


Watermelon and Feta Salad


Sliced wedges of seedless watermelon


Baby arugula


Thinly sliced radishes, thinly sliced red onion (rinsed and dried), kalamata olives (chopped)

toasted pine nuts, fresh mint leaves (torn)


Prefer feta in brine (cow’s milk)


Combine ingredients lightly dressing with EVOO, Kosher salt and cracked pepper.

(Use just enough EVOO to glisten the vegetable mix, not saturate. Tasting each individual ingredient is important.)


A drizzle of balsamic syrup provides a little counterpoint and sweetness. (See “Prosciutto and Melon” recipe for balsamic syrup cooking instructions.)


Mound salad mix on top of watermelon wedges. Drizzle with balsamic syrup. Try this for your 4th of July cook out.


Another winner for your July 4th picnic is heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, fresh basil, EVOO, Kosher salt, cracked pepper & balsamic syrup.
