This Saturday, December 5 (11A-4P) the Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum unveils its newest interactive exhibit (“In the Kitchen: Life on the Family Farm”) showing farm kitchens for the decade prior to the First World War! Appliances and furnishings highlight the 1909 pre-electric kitchen. This visit serves as a good opportunity for you to give back: Bring a canned food donation and a child’s admission is waived! Don’t worry about losing valuable shopping time: They have an interesting gift shop!
Wineries love the holiday season and get all dressed up for your visits. Here are some to consider for this upcoming weekend:
—Gray Ghost Vineyards promises the largest cork Christmas display ever with 60,000 corks. Now you know what to do with all those corks!
—Breaux Vineyards offers complimentary holiday cookies and mulled wine to soothe you into the celebratory period. Wine discounts, too.
—Prince Michel wants you to try their gourmet foods and has samples for your consideration as they are home to the largest winery gift shop in the state.
Get out your January calendar. Here are two events you won’t want to miss. The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm and Chef Christopher Edwards received an invitation (Friday, January 22) to cook at the James Beard House in New York. If you are interested in attending, contact the Restaurant (540-822-9017) as they can offer you the membership price.
A second piece of good news from the Patowmack Farm folks: They will host the 1st ever local chef cooking gathering Thursday, January 28. The event brings together the bounty of the county: 5 local chefs, 5 local wines, 5 local farms, and one local beneficiary, Loudoun Interfaith Relief organization. More to come on both of these stellar events!
Take a break and enjoy the seasonal events.
