Sharing the Flavors and Creativity of Appalachian Foods
Doesn't a nice, home-style meal made with local ingredients sound good? On October 3, 2020 the Williamson Farmers Market will host their Farm To Table Dinner in downtown Williamson. The dinner is described by Williamson Health and Wellness Center Marketing and Nutrition Manager Kristin DeBoard as “an outdoor dining experience of local foods and flavors, and a chance to connect with our farmers and really see the flavors and creativity of Appalachian foods.”
The Farmers Market sources ingredients from the dinner from the same growers that produce foods for the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program throughout the summer, along with other vendors from the weekly market and community garden located in East Williamson.
Ordinary Becomes Extraordinary
According to Kristin, the menu is not yet set in stone, but she anticipates featuring pork as the main dish along with locally made jams and honey, fresh greens, and apples as the dessert theme.
To comply with COVID-19 guidelines, diners will be seated at round tables rather than the long, elbow-to-elbow tables that they’ve used in the past. Also, each table will seat no more than six diners. Once seated, diners will be asked to stay in their seats, and each table will be served by a specific waiter or waitress.
Kristin is looking forward to using common ingredients to make something special. “I look forward to using everyday ingredients to make something extraordinary. I think it’s especially cool when you can do that with local foods.”
