Root To Table Dinner

Taste of Blue Ridge Culinary Series

Our first event in the Culinary Trail Series will be a “Root to Table” dinner at Hillbrook Inn’s Redbook Restaurant in Charles Town, West Virginia. The evening includes a five-course dinner where you get the chance to meet and interact with the chefs that designed each course. Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable personal experience and the chance to see first-hand how our community of farmers and restaurants collaborates for the love of good food. In addition to a fantastic meal, you’ll get to know the Taste of Blue Ridge chefs and community partners as they present and share in your dining experience.

We will gather at a family style table where you can enjoy the feeling of a restaurant without walls, experiencing the freshest of flavors while you breathe in the fresh air. The chefs will harvest herbs right from the property, while also partnering with farmers and growers from the surrounding area. Additionally, we’ll bring the farm stand to you by offering local produce for sale, as well as other items our chefs love.

The event will showcase the following community partners:

Chinatown, Winchester, VA – Chef Ming Chan
Gentle Harvest, Marshall, VA – Chef Lawrence Kocurek
George’s Food & Spirits, Winchester, VA – Chef John Lawrence
Magnolia at the Mill, Purcellville, VA – Chef Erik Foxx-Nettnin
