August 25 – Traditional Southern Summer Dinner

August 25 – Traditional Southern Summer Dinner: My grandparents had a large garden and my grandmother also foraged for wild edibles. In the summer they enjoyed fresh tomatoes, corn, green beans, squash and fresh peaches from their orchard. We have taken some of my grandmother’s recipes jazzed them-up a little and offer you a wonderful Southern–Style Summer Dinner.

Saturday Farm to Table Dinners: We are authentically Farm to Table, growing much of our produce with caring attention. We are as local as local gets and of the season to the moment. Beechwood Inn offers fine dining in the North Georgia Mountains every Saturday featuring Chef’s Tasting Dinners paired to fine wines. Each menu is pre-selected by our chefs based on what is seasonal and available that day. Most of our seasonal foods are organic and natural, many from sustainable North Georgia farms, orchards, dairies and vineyards. Reservations are needed.
