Farm dinner in Waxhaw

A dream team of chefs will cook for the Waxhaw Food and Drink Weekend to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. And they'll be doing it with all local ingredients. Check out the lineup sent to me by local farming force Sammy Koenigsberg:

Paul Verica of the Club at Longview, passed appetizers
Gene Briggs, Blue, Local Spring Onion and New Potato Soup With Crisp Bacon and Micro Chives
Marc Jacksina, Halcyon Flavors of the Earth, Rabbit Rillette with Pickled Local Vegetables and Baby Clover Salad
Joe Kindred, Roosters, braised Bame Farms pork belly, Anson Mills smoked tomato polenta and local organic vegetables.
Ben Miles, BLT Steak, thyme-based beef strip loin, Gruyere spoon bread, spring vegetables and grilled ramp hollandaise
Bruce Moffett, Barringtons, local-strawberry shortcakes with whipped cream and Grand Marnier.

That's all paired with wines from Anita Skogland.

Think how much it would cost to eat at all six of their restaurants: A lot more than the $100 cost of the ticket for the dinner. It's 6:30 p.m. May 13 at the Waxhaw Women's Club, 200 E. S. Main St. Get tickets by calling 704-843-2195, extension 226, or email events@waxhaw.com.
