TerraVita’s Hill Fire Dinner
For the fourth consecutive year, the TerraVita Food & Drink Festival celebrates the men and women who love to play with fire. This year’s twist? This once meat-centric dinner will put vegetables in the limelight. Instead of barbecue and meats over spits and grills, we’ll celebrate the bounty of our incredible local farms with a vegetable-focused menu. Chefs, brewers, distillers, farmers and bakers – the best from across the Southeast – will join forces to prepare a dinner. In addition to the outstanding chefs, Botanist & Barrel will be pouring cider, and Sean Umstead from the soon-to-open Kingfisher in Durham will be mixing cocktails with spirits from Cathead Distillery. The 2018 chef lineup includes: Jason Alley of Pasture and Comfort in Richmond, VA; Brittanny Anderson of Metzger Bar & Butchery and Brenner Pass in Richmond, VA; Clark Barlowe of Heirloom in Charlotte, NC; Ian Boden of The Shack in Staunton, VA; Kevin Callaghan of Acme Food & Beverage Co. in Carrboro, NC ; Lydia Clopton of Love, Lydia Bakery and PinPoint in Wilmington, NC; Josh DeCarolis of Mothers & Sons in Durham, NC; Greg McPhee of The Anchorage in Greenville, SC; Florence Melin of Sucre & Sel in Cary, NC; Caroline Morrison of The Fiction Kitchen in Raleigh, NC; and Matthew Register of Southern Smoke BBQ in Garland, NC. Not all dishes will be vegetarian, but many will have a vegetarian option. Meat could play a part; veggies will just take a starring role in these dishes! $80; Thursday, 6:30 pm; 301 West Main St, Carrboro, NC 27510; 910.376.3237
