Time to dig in to the spring and summer calendar and plant some ideas in your head about some great upcoming events at Spice Acres.
The innovative and creative culinary minds behind Spice Kitchen and Bar, and Spice Acres have announced the dates and locations for their Plated Landscape Dinner Series.
Plated Landscapes are held at the farm occupied by the Bebenroth Family, Spice Acres, in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and at select family farms that supply their kitchen with local sustainable foods.
These communal dining experiences are the brain child of Chef/Founder/Farmer, Ben Bebenroth and started in 2006.
For the $150 ticket guests receive a welcoming cocktail and passed hor d’oeuvres, followed by a guided farm tour, and a five-course meal with expertly paired wines. And the setting can’t be beat.
The 10 night series starts in late June and goes through October, although you don’t have to commit to the entire series, of course! Go to one, or one each season! Advance purchase required via Spice’s Eventbrite page.
