Dear Chapter Chefs:
Summer has flown by quickly! Our July, 2013 Chapter meeting was held, most appropriately, underneath the garden arbors behind Kings Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. We toured the working, Colonial Williamsburg culinary gardens and learned a lot about the early, Colonial farm-to-fork movement. Today, these products are still used in Williamsburg Inn and the Williamsburg Lodge. Four of the Colonial Williamsburg Apprentices, utilizing produce from the gardens, did a quick fire demo that was fun and innovative. Thank you to Chefs Travis Brust, Rhys Lewis and the apprentices for such a special and unusual program!
We have many items on our August meeting agenda (Hampton Bay Days fundraiser, report from Chef Schadler on the national conference in Las Vegas, Chefs Ball) plus an exciting demonstration of home beer brewing from Chef Kyle Woodruff! The meeting will be at Waypoint Seafood and Grill in Williamsburg, beginning at 300 PM.
Be sure to put the Chefs’ Summer Picnic on your date book! Win and Deb Goodier have invited us back to the River House on Sunday, September 29, 2013! Bring a dish and come and enjoy this laid back afternoon of good food and great company!
We will see you at the meetings and I hope you will join us to help OUR chapter at Hampton Bay Days!
All the best,
Nancy L. Geddes, C.E.C., C.D.M., C.F.P.P.
