Seasonal Small Plates and Wine Pairings
The Western Wake Farmers' Market invites you to join them at The Umstead Hotel and Spa for a tasting of farm to table cuisine, showcasing small sampling plates prepared by Executive Chef Scott Crawford paired with wines selected by sommelier Hai Tran.
Award-winning Executive Chef Scott Crawford will be preparing seasonal small plates using a variety of locally-grown ingredients from vendors at WWFM. Each plate will showcase the market’s selection of fresh seasonal items. Each course will be accompanied with wines selected by sommelier, Hai Tran. Crawford and Tran will provide an interactive experience for guests, in additional to a question and answer session.
In conjunction with the meal, WWFM will hold a silent auction featuring a variety of locally-made crafts, gift baskets, gift certificates and much more. All proceeds from tickets and silent auction items will directly benefit WWFM.
