Appetites Whet for Farm to Fork Event
WHEELING — The Wheeling Symphony auxiliary’s eighth annual Farm to Fork event is set to begin at 5 p.m. on Aug. 10.
Three event chairs — Robin Dunbar, Lori Spadafore and Danielle Futey — and their committee have been busy planning this year’s culinary adventure.
The Farm to Fork roving outdoor dining experience will alight this year at the historic Old Trail Farm, the home of Linda Whitaker, near Triadelphia.
Attendees will sit at a continuous table, draped with linen in a field, set with proper crystal glasses and cutlery and fresh-picked wild flowers in mason jars. Lucky guests know they are in for an experience like no other.
The evening will begin with appetizers and a signature drink, enjoyed with the sounds of the Wheeling Symphony’s jazz ensemble.
The multi-course, al fresco dinner will follow with Chef Charlie Schlegel preparing a feast using local ingredients. A representative of Good Mansion Wines will pair a wine with each course. A grand summer evening is planned.
Until capacity is reached, reservations for Farm to Fork are confirmed by payment on a first-come, first-served basis and must be made prior to Aug. 10.
Sponsorships for the series are still being accepted. Checks or donations should be made payable to the Wheeling Symphony Auxiliary and mailed to the Wheeling Symphony Society, 1025 Main St., Suite 811, Wheeling, WV 26003. For more information, call the symphony office at 304-232-6191.
