Description

What is a Plated Landscape Dinner?

Started in 2006 and trademarked in 2016, Plated Landscapes are the brain child of Chef/Founder/Farmer, Ben Bebenroth. These al fresco dining experiences take place at our farm, Spice Acres, along with other locations in Northeast Ohio. The evening begins with a handcrafted welcoming cocktail created by our beverage team at Spice Kitchen + Bar, along with farm inspired passed hor d'oeuvres. The 30-45 minute "cocktail hour" ends with a welcome from Ben and an introduction by the evening's host(s) - the farmers! The group will be led on a 30-45 minute tour of the farm and then seated in the White Barn for a five-course, wine-paired dinner that incorporates food from our farm along with a heavy focus on wild game and the seasons finest stone fruit! Spices' Plated Landscapes are sure to be the most unique dining experiences of your summer season!

Venue:

Spice Acres is a unique gem in the country. It’s one of only 11 farms that are part of a farm-leasing program in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park called the Countryside Initiative. Managed in partnership with the Countryside Conservancy, it is the only program in the country that conserves National Park land through sustainable farming.

In 2014, Chef Ben Bebenroth moved his family of four to Spring Hill Farm (now Spice Acres). The homestead was not only perfect for raising his kids, it was also a dream come true – encompassing 13 acres of rich, Ohio landscape where he could grow and nurture the plants and livestock needed for his catering and restaurant businesses.

Seasonal Ingredient Highlight:

Game meats and stone fruits, end of year big root harvest, early squashes and roasted chilis, nuts of all kinds. Big wines to compliment big game of wild boar, venison, trout, roe, and of course a plentiful variety of fungus.

We couldn’t resist the temptation to go out in style. This dinner at Spice Acres will round out the season with the peak harvest of so many deep flavors, roasting game meats and root vegetables abound, fresh horseradish coming right out of the soil onto the grater over a wood grilled venison loin…I’m starving. Grab your chalice and come on down to the Valley for sure fire (roasted) good time. The wines and beers for this dinner will be very deep in character and have a strong presence on the palate. Enjoy the drive down into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park as the leaves turn and the sun starts to fade just a little early…
