About the Dinner
From Tailgating to Tavern Tables enjoy a night of Agri Cultural culinary excellence presented by Taste of Blue Ridge Root to Table Culinary Series under the grand Manor House walnut trees at Celebrations Farms.
Taste will salute our fall harvest in the Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia by bringing together six top chefs and multiple local farmers. We will also have our VIP Chef Ambassadors and food demonstrations from local farmers participating in the event.
Due to physical distancing requirements, we have crafted several seating options for our guests to take advantage of for their peace of mind!
About the Menu
Keep warm as the weather turns cool this autumn with the Root to Table dinner series presenting a vibrant tailgating dinner. The menu is inspired by our farmer’s favorite harvest crops with a twist from our top chefs, in this case, using the pickled and roasted methods. Get ready to enjoy the perfect pairing for these vibrant vegetables accompanied by roasted fall meats, all locally sourced.
You are invited not only to taste new dishes but also to learn from chefs and farmers, the secrets to making amazing curtidos and roasts. We have invited two of our favorite farmers who will do food demonstrations on pickling/canning as well as grilling techniques to give our guests a full culinary experience!
