Aug. 2, 2012. Introducing Food for a Change – the exciting, collaborative project from the creative minds of The Gamekeeper Restaurant, Seed to Plate Catering, Blue Ridge Victuals and High Country Local First. These inventive “farm to table” dinners will be hosted by Camp Sky Ranch in Blowing Rock on Wednesday evenings. Each dinner will feature these amazing chefs as a team, working with local farmers and vendors to create exciting dishes with unique themes. Tickets are non-refundable and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are $40 and must be purchased in advance and you can do so by choosing the dinner(s) of your choice. Seating is limited. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity.
The first dinner is on Wednesday, August 15 at 5 p.m. and is a Back to School Barbeque for individuals and families at Camp Sky Ranch in Blowing Rock. A percentage of ticket sales will go to High Country Local First to help us continue our work on strengthening locally owned, independent businesses and farms in the High Country.
Back to School BBQ is a one-of-a-kind whole hog BBQ featuring a locally grown pig raised by the High Country’s own Ann Rose, of Rose Mountain Farm. This is not your standard barbeque dinner. The swanky fixins’ will be sides such as warm fingerling potato salad with arugula, cabbage fennel with purslane slaw and summer squash vegetable gratin, just to name a few. You won’t find baked beans and cole slaw here. This will be a relaxed dinner for the whole family with delicious food, music and some games for the kids. Best of all, kids eat free. BYOB.
If you are a High Country Local First business member, or if you have a ‘Local First! Rewards Card,’ you can receive $5 off of the listed price.
