The three-course dinner will start with a local salad with creamy buttermilk ranch dressing using local greens, sweet corn, cucumbers, roasted beets, onions, pickled green beans and tomatoes. The second course will feature brisket, smoked using local wood chips, along with creamy mashed potatoes and garlic green beans. The vegetarian option will include grilled squash, zucchini and eggplant topped with Allegheny Chèvre, kale stem pesto and roasted garlic. The final course is a decadent maple crème brûlée with fresh berries.
“We are so happy to be partnering with MoonShadow Café to offer a portion of our Serve It Up Local festival this year,” said Cheryl DeBerry, Natural Resources Business Specialist for Garrett County Office of Economic Development. “We received a grant last year to do a full day’s festivities, but this summer we weren’t able to do so. MoonShadow Café is doing a great job at sourcing as many of the ingredients locally as possible and it’s going to be an amazing meal.”
The plated dinner will start at 6:00 pm on Friday, August 15. An alternative menu for children is being developed. Though walk-ins will be taken, it is best to RSVP as a limited number of meals is being planned. The café will only serve the 50-Mile Meal and cannot offer other menu items during the event. The meal will cost $40, which includes the meal and non-alcoholic drinks. Gratuity is not included. The meal benefits farm-to-table activities in Garrett County.
