OK, so, “Dine With Design,” a culinary event to benefit The Glass House, will be held from noon to 3 p.m. June 9 on the grounds of the New Canaan site.

The “Modern Picnic” will be the event’s centerpiece, offering participants the chance to sample dishes prepared by six award-winning chefs and 10 talented artisans.

A quick sampling to whet your appetite:

° Chef Jeremy McMillan of The Farmhouse Restaurant at The Bedford Post Inn in Bedford will prepare biscuits with whipped lardo and honey; grilled flatbread, bone marrow and gremolata; and ambrosia, poached, grilled and fresh fruit with coconut mascarpone.

° Chef Tony Maw of Craigie on Main in Cambridge, Mass. will serve up farro pasta with duck heart ragout; goat meatballs; and smoked bluefish rillettes with caviar and toast.

In addition, those attending are invited to explore the 49-acre property’s buildings, grounds and art collections. Tickets, at $250 per person, are available for purchase online (throughphilipjohnsonglasshouse.org) or by calling (866) 811-4111.

** Please note that the Food Film Festival that gets under way later that evening is already sold out.
