In most cases, we don’t know always know where the banana or tomato we purchased last week was grown. At our client tasting this past Wednesday, the theme focused on local and more specifically our farm to fork initiative and partnership with local farmers. Titled, “Discover the Taste of Local” our Executive Chef Craig Mason prepared dishes with local ingredients from Linda’s Farm and Mercantile in Winchester, Virginia, Blue Ridge Produce from Elkwood, VA and Profish out of Washington, D.C. Local wines and beers from Corcoran Vineyards made the perfect addition to each local dish. Check out the photos below:

Being served the first course which included local tomatoes, corn and spinach leaves.
Our biggest turn out ever with over 80+ attendees proves how popular “local” is as a topic.
