Spring Event – Sunday, March 26th 2023
Bluemont Station Brewery & Winery – Bluemont, VA
Root to Table’s Exclusive Culinary Experience Celebrating Women’s History Month!
About the Dinner
The kickoff to Root to Table’s 2023 season began with a salute to all the talented women in the culinary and agriculture industries. Root to Table guests were once again welcomed to Bluemont Station Brewery & Winery for an afternoon of culinary excellence. Foodies were able to experience a true Culinary Journey throughout the Manor House of Bluemont Station.
Guests were greeted by Founder Nancy Craun in the Chandelier Room where they could talk to multiple chefs, a butcher, tea maker, and Bluemont Station’s Wine expert before breaking into smaller groups to explore the Manor house. Each room had one to two Food Stations, a Farmer, and a beverage maker where groups could to talk with each woman more while tasting their delicious creations!
After their visit to each of the other 3 rooms of the Manor House, guests gathered back in the Chandelier Room to talk with our two distinguished pastry chefs. Overall this was an incredibly successful Inaugural event for the series. Be on the lookout for more information to come for this event in 2024. We’re planning a two-day extravaganza in Charlottesville, VA to once again salute the amazing women in Culinary & Agriculture!
