Page County Grown - Season Opening Event

The Page County Grown organization had a kick-off event for the summer season - a dinner on the plaza at the Luray Performing Arts Center.  The meal featured brisket and produce from local family farms - in this case, brisket from Skyline Premium Meats, and sweet corn and a green vegetable medley from Public House Produce.  Chef d' cuisine was Chris from the Mimslyn Inn, and several of his colleagues were there as well.

Here's a photo of the brisket on the grill.  I understand it, the gross weight, pre-cooking, was 90 pounds or so.  It had a nice pink ring from the smoke and was as tender as you could ask for - it was prepared the way I aspire to cook it!

Here's a photo of the plate showing the entree and sides.  And a last one of the cash bar in action - this being an outside event, the refreshments were a welcome treat!  Live music from the Bentwood Rockers was the final touch.

A quick check of the website for Page County Grown shows that there are a number of new members this year, and that there are a couple of events already in the works.  I'll put up a post on those items later in the week.

For now, here's the web site:
