Chow. Grub. Spread. All slang for terms used to describe a homestyle meal, simply harvested from the land -as natural as… well water!
It’s hard to find food descriptives worthy of something as simple and delicious as locally sourced food, prepared with heart, without it sounding stilted! The Uxbridge Celebration of Local Food has bought together their best bounty of the season, pairing local farmers and chefs, and you are invited to take a seat at the table!
Participating chefs and restaurants will do ‘menu take-overs’ for the month of September, sourcing ingredients from more than 15, unique producers that grow right in the community.
Expect the unexpected! Perhaps Thunder Ridge Bison will served paired with local cider made from heirloom apples from Banjo Cider Company. We are hoping for award winning, DeBarres Chocolate to be served with… well, everything! (?). You may be surprised to know that Foggy River Farm, a medicinal & culinary herb far, grows tea and practices ‘permaculture’ and will be on the menu! Perhaps there will be a dollop of ‘Oh Honey’ (hot mustard) on your plate from Gratton’s Greatest made from sprouted mustard seed. Or will it be ‘No Pony’ horse radish?
The food is as unique as the events + venues! There is a ‘Farm-To-Train’ dinner aboard the York Durham Heritage Train, a Harvest Moon Festival at The Second Wedge Brewing Company, and a passport to all the great restaurants, like Feast ON accredited Urban Pantry Restaurant!
Come hungry! Come with a curious palate! And come ready to share with some very fine people!
