Taste of Southern Vermont to feature small plates, big tastes

BRATTLEBORO — November will see a different kind of art take center stage at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center: the culinary kind.

The inaugural Taste of Southern Vermont will be held Saturday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Working with fresh ingredients sourced from local farms, area chefs will show off their culinary chops with a series of custom small-plate creations, local beer and cider, and wine pairings from Windham Wines.

Featured chefs hail from The Gleanery, The Perfect Wife Restaurant, Folly Foods, Superfresh! Organic Cafe, T.J. Buckley's, Rigani wood-fired pizza, Whetstone Station, and Duo Restaurant.

Desserts will include the creations of Coddle and Cossett and Green Mountain Orchards.

The evening will also feature a selection of music curated by Mike Roberts, frontman of the local band Wooden Dinosaur, and a wide variety of items available for bid in a silent auction.

Guests will be asked to select one dish as the “people's choice” for the evening, with the chef responsible winning a voucher to purchase more local ingredients through Windham Farm and Food.

All proceeds from the event will support the programming of local nonprofit Food Connects, whose mission is to cultivate healthy food and farm connections in classrooms, cafeterias, and communities in and around Windham County.
