Our Farm to Fork Dinner Tasting

SeedFork of The Highlands Dinner Tasting

Each year, before SeedFork of The Highland’s annual Farm to Fork Dinner, we host a dinner tasting, which is essentially a practice run of the event’s menu.

This year, The Putnam Room graciously hosted us, and our dinner coordinators, Kitty Philips and Connie Lawson, and chef Chad Combs and Amanda Dodson from Poet’s Kitchen put together an incredible spread.
