Okemo's Coleman Brook Tavern debuts Farmhouse Dinner Series
LUDLOW, Vt. – Coleman Brook Tavern, Okemo Mountain Resort’s premier restaurant, is introducing a Farmhouse Dinner Series. Six communal, artisan dinners featuring great hospitality, a fun atmosphere and delicious local foods are scheduled on Saturday evenings throughout the summer: June 25, July 9, July 23, August 20, September 3 and September 17.
Coleman Brook Tavern’s Farmhouse Dinners will celebrate the bounty of Vermont’s terroir, its producers and food creations in a family-style setting. One large table will be set for dinner and everyone will eat together. Each week will feature a different menu and some of Okemo’s farmer partners will be in attendance.
“This kind of dinner is rare in this country. You might be apt to find this in European culture,” said Okemo Mountain Resort Executive Sous Chef Jason Tostrup. “Sharing a meal with a group of other ‘foodie types’ is a culinary adventure. Trying a food or dish in a way you might not have tried before takes you to another country – one bite at a time.”
Located at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn, Coleman Brook Tavern offers a lovely outdoor dining patio surrounded by colorful summer blooms and Green Mountain vistas. Inside, diners of all ages enjoy the upscale yet relaxed atmosphere of Okemo’s flagship restaurant. Executive Chef Scot Emerson and Chef Jason Tostrup are committed to sourcing local ingredients and giving new meaning to the term “farm-to-table.” They work with dozens of local farmers and food producers to create breakfast, lunch, pub and dinner menus. They have also created Okemo’s Whole Animal Program. They work to obtain local, pasture-raised, organic, antibiotic-free Berkshire hogs from Cavendish Farm, Cornish chickens from Parlemee Farm and certified Wagyu beef from Spring-Rock Farm. Coleman Brook Tavern’s Butcher Block showcases local organic proteins and Dock to Table offers seasonal seafood from around the globe. Coleman Brook Tavern boasts a full bar, an impressive selection of craft beers and a wine list that has earned the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence for nearly a decade.
The Farmhouse Dinner Series is offered with very limited seating and reservations are required. Dinner is $55 per person. Diners may call Coleman Brook Tavern at 802-228-1435 to secure their place at the table for this not-to-be-missed dining opportunity. More information is available at okemo.com.
