May 16: Spring Farm to Table Dinner

May 16: Spring Farm to Table Dinner: Chefs don’t create from recipes, they create from tastes. Here our chefs start with the finest of ingredients and then turn to their intuition and their memories to figure out what might be done with those ingredients. We will explore some fresh spring ingredients and add flavor nuances to each course. We have paired this meal to some wonderful wines that offer some nice herbal aromas and tastes
