This weekend's Life is Good Festival at Prowse Farm in Canton not only promises to be the feel-good outdoor music festival of the season, there will be some tasty food on hand as well. Todd Winer from the Met Restaurant Group, Peter Davis of Henrietta's Table, Patrick Campbell of No. 9 Park, Todd Heberlein of Volante Farm, and Richard Rayment of the Seaport Hotel each devised a specialty sandwich to be sold at the festival. Most feature Pete & Gerry's organic eggs – except Rayment's “Grilled Cheese & Tomato Trumpet Royal,” which pairs a tomato jam with Cabot smoky bacon cheddar and sauteed mushrooms. Patrick Campbell's “Savory Pain Perdu” uses the eggs three ways—fried, in the mustard aioli, and to dip the sandwich before grilling. The combo of fried egg, grated Cabot cheddar, custard, aioli, and ham gets just a hint of breakfast from a light dusting of cinnamon. The chef-designed sandwiches will sell for $5 each, with all the profits going to the Life is Good Foundation's Playmakers, a program that helps kids combat the effects of poverty, violence, and illness “through the restorative power of play.” The festival will be running free shuttles from the Canton T station on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and to purchase tickets, see the Life is Good web site.
