Chef Plum has another Dinner Underground up his chef sleeves. This time around, Plum will focus on grassfed beef from Shire Gate Farms and will use other local ingredients that highlight our love of summer foods. The Shire Gate Farm dinner is July 14 from 6-9 at Butcher’s Best in Newtown, CT. Tickets are $80 (buy them here) and are limited to just 30 so you have to imagine they are going to sell out pretty quickly. We were fortunate enough to be invited to attend his list dinner which was his own take on BBQ paired with beer from Saranac Brewing and we had a blast.
You’ll find that Chef Plum and Sous Chef Justin Kern space out each course perfectly. You’ll have plenty of time to try out each course, chat with your table mates, and just plain chill. After you course is cleared away, Chef Plum (you’ve seen him on The Taste, Food Network, ehow.com, and OmNomCT) will talk about what you’re about to eat. We’re talking the inspiration behind the dish, how it was made, what’s unique about it, and possibly his ideas on the big bang theory.
We hope you can make it!
