Taking Dad to Washington, DC, this Father’s Day?
What about food (the all-family crowd-pleaser)?
Super Chef stopped in for a tasting of dishes that the restaurant is serving for The Virginia Festival, running June 17th to June 30th and featuring Virginian-themed dishes and local wines. Head Chef Nate Waugaman‘s superlative Shrimp & Grits went perfectly with local Catoctin Creek Distilling Company‘s fine 92-Proof Roundstone Rye. The Virginia Peanut Soup: garnished with celery and blackberries was a rich version grown-up version of a PBJ minus the sugar. The Fried Chesapeake Oysters with rhubarb remoulade went down especially well with a cold glass of white chardonnay from Trump Winery.
And don’t forget the hams, whether American country or Spanish serrano.
Coming up is a Catoctin Creek Tasting on Wednesday, June 17 followed by a Blend Your Own Bordeaux Competition on Friday, June 19th and more wine tastings: click here for more information.
