Dinner Garden Series in Virginia

virginia_charlottesville_clifton-innAs the ground begins to thaw, and tiny green buds start peeking through the soil, a new crop of chefs are sprouting up in the garden at The Clifton Inn, 1296 Clifton Inn Drive, Charlottesville, Virginia.

Well, not literally. The 2014 installment of Chefs in the Garden, an annual visiting chefs dinner series hosted by Clifton’s garden-centric chef Tucker Yoder, kicks off April 28, 2014, featuring chefs from across the region who will work together with Yoder, both in the garden and in the kitchen, to present a locally-sourced, seasonal, epicurean experience to remember – all served al fresco on the verdant grounds of the inn.

For the début of the season April 28, Yoder welcomes Melissa Close from Palladio Restaurant in Barboursville Vineyard, and Curtis Shaver of Hamilton’s, both from Charlottesville.

The July 29, 2014, dinner will showcase Richmond. Chef Lee Gregory of The Roosevelt gives a nod to all-things-Virginia. Gregory joins Yoder along with chefs Caleb Shriver and Phil Perrow from Dutch & Company.

This season’s dinner series concludes September 29, 2014, when Yoder teams up with chefs Tim Burgess and Vincent Derquenne, a culinary partnership whose restaurants are Bang! and Bizou and private event venue, The Space.

The evenings will begin with hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m. and dinner will commence at 7 p.m. Seats for each eight-course dinner are $88 per person or $150 with beverage pairings.
