Next weekend, Summer Solstice, June 20th proves to me the classic dilemma: Two great chefs, two great causes, two great meals, two unforgettable experiences, but both on the same evening. Now you have to make the choice. There is the Summer Solstice Dinner by Chef Tony Chittum, from Vermillion Resturant, to be held in Loudoun County and Chef Cathal Armstrong from Restaurant Eve will hold his dinner in Rappahannock County. Both chefs will create an elaborate farm-to-table experience. Chef Armstrong’s Summer Solstice Farm Dinner in Rappahannock will begin at 5:30 PM
at historic Mount Vernon Farm outside the village of Sperryville. Chef Chittum will begin his Fork-to-Farm feast at 4:00 PM on Loudoun County Farmland.
These summer solstice feasts will invite guests to dine in the very fields where the meal’s ingredients are grown, alongside the producers of their food and wine. You will have a chance to meet and mingle with local farmers and enjoy a meal as it was meant to be. Get your tickets soon as they are going quickly. Tickets for Chef Armstrong’s Rappahannock Event can be purchased at www.GourmetRappahannock.com and tickets for Chef Chittum’s Loudoun County event are available at www.vermilionrestaurant.com.
