Have an appetite for fun? Do you relish sampling local fresh food? And do you enjoy gazing at scenic natural beauty? Well, West Virginia state parks has cooked up a deal for you! This summer, eight parks are joining together to offer a new farm to table dinner series.
These special dinners will feature dishes with locally grown produce and food products. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, wait until you see what each park will be plating! Chefs at participating parks will cook a signature dish paired with wines, beer or coffee from West Virginia.
This dinner series will feature the best of West Virginia food and beverages. There’ll be crab cakes to die for. Baked steak that reminds you of grandma’s kitchen. And panko-crusted trout you’d be sure came from a five-star restaurant. You don’t want to miss it!
