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 at one long table under the stars (or in a barn or hoop house if weather doesn't cooperate!) for a five-course, wine-paired dinner that incorporates food from that farm, some of which, you may have picked on your tour! 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:

Peppers, tomatoes and eggplant, oh my! Join us as we dive into all of the glorious Solanaoceae family that Spice Acres has to offer! We will be in the throes of sweet corn season, and the green chilis will just be showing up in gazpachos and blistering on the wood grill. Herbs seem to find thier way into everything! Peak summer cooking is some of the most creative and impulsive cooking we do all year. Don't miss this deep dive into summer fruits and herbs complimented by outstanding wines and local craft beers cooked over an oak tree that fell on the farm last year. It's a great time to be on farm!

Please wear comfortable walking shoes (heels not recommended) and dress for the forecasted weather.

We prefer to dine among the stars however there is always a rain plan in place - please bring an umbrella and appropriate shoes if there is a chance of rain as we always try to tour the farm before dinner, rain or shine.

Arrival begins at 6:00pm for hors d'oeuvres and welcome cocktail and tour leaves promptly at 6:30pm, so please be timely or let Spice know in advance if you are running late.

Gratuity is not included and always appreciated!
