You’ve probably heard the latest eco buzz word, locavore, by now. Simply defined, it’s a person who enjoys and appreciates eating locally grown food in season. Now, Watertable Restaurant at Renaissance Harborplace and Slow Food Baltimore are capitalizing on this delicious idea by hosting a five-course farmstead dinner at 6:30 p.m. April 22 at the restaurant.
Local farmers and vintners from Springfield Farms, Roseda Beef, Chapel Country Creamery, Woodhall Winery, Ivy Brand Farm, and others will also speak at the dinner. The menu will feature produce and meats from these folks and other growers, including Gunpowder Bison, Marvesta Shrimp Farms, South Mountain, and Basignani Winery.
Reserve a spot by April 17 by calling 410-685-8439. Cost is $65 for such fare as bison carpaccio with cave-aged cheddar and truffle aioli, shrimp ravioli, and goat cheese with strawberry and rhubarb sauce, paired with appropriate wines, of course. It’s a foodie’s dream meal.
