With so much nutrition information out there, sometimes you just need a fresh perspective.

Farm to Plate Dinner October 17, 2011

Filed under: Eating Local,Restaurants — JBraddockRD @ 7:28 am

Saturday  night was truly magical. I know that may sound a little strange being that it was just dinner and a movie. But to me, it was awesome. I attended Black Hog Farm’s farm to table dinner at Pastiche. The food was amazing (go eat there). Each dish seemed to have a small story attached to it.

I had the pleasure of sitting with some of the family members of Black Hog Farm during dinner. What a treat! I learned about the individual ingredients and came away convinced that this family is deeply vested in what they do. It was very evident that a great deal of pride, and really love, goes into the care of each animal and crop they produce.

I highly recommend supporting this farm. The prices on their food items are also some of the best I’ve seen. Contact Sharon at info@blackhogfarm.com for more information.

Here are some pictures from my fantastic meal. (I am still working on my food styling skills so I hope they look appetizing.)
