Saturday, Nov 18: Hawk Knob Cider Dinner Pairing w/ Lost Creek!

On Saturday, November 18, Hawk Knob Cider in Lewisburg, WV hosts a special cider pairing dinner featuring chefs and storytellers Mike Costello and Amy Dawson from Lost Creek Farm. Tickets for this unique culinary experience are $100 per guest and include six courses, each paired with one of Hawk Knob’s acclaimed traditional ciders. Dinner starts at 6pm.

Via their traveling kitchen, Mike and Amy share story-rich Appalachian foods at culinary events across the eastern United States. Lost Creek Farm utilizes food as a way to tell important stories about the way people of all backgrounds have connected to the Appalachian landscape throughout time. Defined by centuries of immigration to the region, West Virginia’s food traditions reflect a melting pot that often goes unnoticed, and a complexity that goes underappreciated. In highlighting foods rooted in place, tradition and story, Lost Creek’s menus might include traditional Spanish longaniza sausage passed on by their neighbors in Harrison County, wild harvested ingredients, and Appalachian heirloom crops grown on their 180 acre farm.

Here’s the menu!

  • 1st course, served before seating and during cidery tour rustic hand pie with Harrison County Spanish sausage || green tomato sorghum sofrito || garden chow chow paired with a fresh Active Ferment Cider as was the tradition growing up in the Allegheny Highlands, there’s nothing like robbing a freshly pressed barrel of actively fermenting cider

  • 3rd course salad of kilt garden greens || smoked mountain trout || charred fennel || pickled onion || burnt and broken communion wafers || creamed sour corn paired with Appalachian Classic Hard Cider
