Good food, good cause: It's a lovely September evening. You're about to dine on a gourmet meal created from exceptional, picked-that-day produce. Even better: You get to pay it forward, putting your dinner dollars toward the farmers and foodies of tomorrow. That's the idea behind the fundraising harvest dinners at Veggielution in San Jose and Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale, two sustainable community farms.

The "Bounty of Heart's Delight" event starts at 6 p.m. Sept. 11 with a tour and appetizers at the Veggielution Farm at Emma Prusch Park. Then the crowd will repair to downtown San Jose, where Chef Joseph Gaudet of Nova Res Catering will prepare a dinner using Veggielution tomatoes, squash, okra, peppers and locally sourced pork. Tickets, $100. Details:

Then on Sept. 23, a 6:30 p.m. champagne reception at Raynor Park will kick off the Full Circle Farm festivities, followed by a moonlit "Fall Harvest Feast" on the farm with live music and silent auction. Michael Miller, executive chef of the Silicon Valley Capital Club and formerly of Trevese, will create a dinner menu that showcases the farm's vegetables and herbs. Tickets, $85. Details: 408-735-8154,

Food fest: Sure, the 18th annual festival being presented this weekend in San Jose by the Assyrian Church of the East will feature a colorful parade and lots of traditional dancing and folk music. But when they call it the Assyrian Food Festival, you know the eats will be fabulous. You'll find kebabs four ways, dolma and pirashki, plus Assyrian specialties such as boushala (a traditional yogurt soup) and bourak (a type of egg roll). The long confectionery list starts with baklava and moves right into zolbia, bomia, kada, nazoki and booshalad khalva. Details: 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Aug. 21-22 at 680 Minnesota Ave., with shuttles from the Tamien rail station.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
