Cider Dinner Pairing
On Saturday, November 18, Hawk Knob Cider hosts a special cider pairing dinner featuring chefs and storytellers Mike Costello and Amy Dawson from Lost Creek Farm. Tickets for this unique culinary experience are $100 per guest and include six courses, each paired with one of Hawk Knob’s acclaimed traditional ciders.
Via their traveling kitchen, Mike and Amy share story-rich Appalachian foods at culinary events across the eastern United States. Lost Creek Farm utilizes food as a way to tell important stories about the way people of all backgrounds have connected to the Appalachian landscape throughout time. Defined by centuries of immigration to the region, West Virginia’s food traditions reflect a melting pot that often goes unnoticed, and a complexity that goes underappreciated. In highlighting foods rooted in place, tradition and story, Lost Creek’s menus might include traditional Spanish longaniza sausage passed on by their neighbors in Harrison County, wild harvested ingredients, and Appalachian heirloom crops grown on their 180 acre farm.
Here’s the menu!
