Bramble Hollow Farm provides the chicken to a local restaurant that is dedicated to sourcing their food locally–Local Roots. When we found out that they were having a special event featuring the chicken we love from Bramble Hollow we had to go.
We got there and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers. I love nothing more than appetizers and cocktails. I had the specialty drink which was a homemade blueberry lemonade with rum. And the apps were incredible deviled eggs, chicken croquette and a deep fried chicken skin with a spicey sweet sauce. It was all so good, but I knew I had to save me appetite for dinner.
We aren’t Food Network folks, we don’t have cable so our cooking shows are limited to America’s Test Kitchen and Sam the Cooking guy. The culinary skill of the Chef and his staff was incredible, fancier than we normally do, and as you can see from my menu, I had to take notes.
The dinner as a whole was wonderful. The food was top quality, we got treated to a dining experience that we never had before. Brent got up and talked about the importance of the breed and keeping the breed available and to do so we need to eat them. The owner Diane Elliot came over and talked to us a few times. The waitstaff (CD was our server) was knowledgeable in explaining the food and took care of us with 5 star quality service. It was an event not just a dinner, 3 hours after we sat down with our cocktails and apps the kitchen came out to a round of applause.
If you find yourself trying to decide to go to a farm to table
meal event, you really should. It is an opportunity to really see what our amazing local food community can do…New York and L-A have nothing on our fancy farm dinner!
