Locavore Dinner at the Winery at Otter Creek
When we had our Locavore Dinner at Flying J Farm last year, with food fresh from the farm and Basi Italia's Chef John Dornback at the grill, the main course hadn't even been served before we started hearing people say that they were already happy with the event. By the time dinner was over, they were asking how we would top it next year. We were flattered, and thrilled that everyone had such a wonderful time.
It wasn't until months later that they started asking, "No, really... how are you going to top that next year?" And we thought, Hmm... this is the kind of challenge we like.
Some of you have gotten hints of what we've come up with, but in case you haven't, let us introduce this year's venue: The Winery at Otter Creek. The winery sits on a small lake in Johnstown, and owners Jeff and Christie Chrisman and Mike and Jackie Evans have offered to host our dinner this year. The food will still come mainly from Flying J (they're neighbors), and Chef John will still be preparing it -- along with Chef Kent Rigsby of Rigsby's Kitchen. Overnight camping will be available after the dinner.
Come join us. You won't want to miss it.
As was the case last year, tickets for members will go on sale first, this Friday, September 18, at noon. Members should receive email from us by Thursday at 5 p.m. with the password to use to purchase tickets. Nonmember tickets for any remaining slots will become available at noon on Friday, September 25.
