It’s hard to believe this is the sixth edition of the Valley Dish. It seems like the first feast was only months ago! It says something about this friendly city—that local farmers, brewers, wine-makers, and restaurant owners who understand the importance of coming together to break bread are never in short supply.
This collaborative dinner took place on March 13th, 2019 at Rocktown Kitchen, inside their stunning dining room located in the renovated Ice House. Host Mira Papas and her husband, Chef Kristo, created a multi-course event—inviting their personal favorite local food and beverage producers to participate. The meal featured these farmers/businesses and their tasty products: butter and cream from Main Street Farmstead, crisp and tasty microgreens from Shenandoah Growers, Irish Red Ale from Pale Fire Brewing Co. and wine from CrossKeys Vineyard, alongside our Farmer Focus chicken.
Between courses, representatives and owners from each of the participating businesses had a chance to talk about the story of how their company came to be, their products and processes, and where to find them.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the evening, and left very full 🙂 If you didn’t make it to this edition of Valley Dish, keep your eyes open for the next event!
