Slow Food RVA’s spring GRAZE to be held at Tuckahoe Plantation
The GRAZE Food Series was created to provide an ongoing and roving celebratory food experience where the highlights are Virginia chefs and the close-to-home food sources that make them true slow food advocates. The 2014 spring gathering will take place at Tuckahoe Plantation, and will celebrate heritage and heirloom products, their producers and the chefs who appreciate and prepare these rare gems in our food system. Featured chefs include Walter Bundy from Lemaire, Jason Alley from Pasture, Joe Sparatta from Heritage, DeAndre Wilson from Rappahannock and Craig Smith from Estilo. Each chef will prepare tasting size portions of a dish that highlights a rare ingredient from our past, in celebration of Slow Food’s Ark of Taste program.
More information can be found here. The menu will be posted on the web site by May 1, 2014. Tickets are $30/person for food and alcohol tastings, $15 for food tastings only/no alcohol, $5 for 12 and older, and children under 12 are free at https://grazeattuckahoe.eventbrite.com.
