7 Course Farm to Table Dinner
Does it get any better than that? After attending this event and filming it, I can attest that NO, it does not. Local Homestead Product's 7 Course Farm to Table Dinner featuring pork was an absolute success. Each course was more delicious than the last. Therefore, I declare it the best meal I've had out in a while. And the pork chop, pasture raised by LHP, was to die for. Hands down the best pork chop I have ever eaten. The people LHP partnered with, showed up and cooked some delicious food. They partnered with The Smoking Swine Food Truck, Molli’s Cafe, Shepherds Manor Creamery, Milkhouse Brewery and Cow Comfort Inn Dairy. Thank goodness too because it was absolutely delicious.
The Bangin' BLT - A Smoking Swine Creation
One of the first dishes that blew my mind was the Bangin' BLT cooked by The Smoking Swine Food Truck. Their cooks were gifted individuals crafting some of the most delicious pork dishes. The Bangin' BLT was just a normal BLT but with THICK cut smoked bacon. Their bacon literally melted in your mouth and made the divine. If I could, I would eat this EVERY DAY, it's that good. I mean Chik-Fil-A level good, but better. I should mention though, the pork came from Local Homestead Products who pasture raise the pork and sell it fresh in their on farm market. My goodness, I know where I'll be buying my pork from now on. 2425 Marston Rd, New Windsor, MD 21776
7 Courses... And each one was delicious.
Course 1 was a Shepherd's Manor Creamery cheese plate with smoked meats from Local Homestead Products. Then, Course 2 was the aforementioned Bangin' BLT by The Smoking Swine. A salad with all of the ingredients grown right at LHP's green houses comprised course 3. Molli's Cafe's created course 4, their famous Deviled Eggs topped with Bacon bits from LHP. They also handled course 5, a Ham & Bean soup. The soup contained no extra seasonings, just the ingredients themselves. A true testament of Farm to Table. Course 6 was the famous Pork Chop. Pasture raised by LHP, you could tell in the flavor. And finally Course 7 was a Sugar Cube Cantaloupe filled with Cow Comfort Creamery's ice cream. I wasn't much for the cantaloupe but the Ice Cream was out of this world. Cow Comfort Creamery is a must have pit stop.
Oh Yeah. There was also really good beer and music there.
Milkhouse Brewery's beers were on point for the dinner. They had a different pairing for each course and the flavors were just amazing. The best part about Milkhouse's beers are that they are 99.9% locally grown and brewed. There's just something really neat about drinking a beer that hadn't been shipped across the country. Top off the great beer and food with some wonderful live music. Covering everything from Johnny Cash and Jack Johnson to well... you name it, the music was a great compliment to the evening. Again, job well done Local Homestead Products. Job Well Done.
