Event description
Summer's colorful bounty comes to life in an interactive feast for all the senses at Spice Acres in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

About this event

Join us at Spice Acres for the triumphant return of Plated Landscape™ dinners! We’ve partnered with Yellow House Cheese to create an earth-to-table dining experience that’s fresh + innovative, yet not unfamiliar for those that have attended in the past.

Chefs Ben Bebenroth and Jonathan Bennett found common culinary inspiration from their travels in Brazil and Peru, respectively, and created an immersive “al asador” experience that will connect us more deeply to the journey from farm to plate. With an open pit outdoor cooking station as the focal point, attendees can watch chefs roast Yellow House lamb alongside the season’s vegetables from Spice Acres and other local farms over open flames.

What is a Plated Landscape™ Dinner?

Started in 2006, Plated Landscapes are the brainchild of Chef/Founder/Farmer, Ben Bebenroth. These al fresco dining experiences take place at our farm, Spice Acres, along with other scenic and immersive locations in Northeast Ohio. The evening begins with a signature beverage and seasonal hors d'oeuvres. Then, we’re introduced to the evening's host(s) - the stewards of the land! The group embarks on a 30-45 minute tour of the location and is then seated for a wine-paired dinner that incorporates food from our farm and the gems of the season’s harvest.

About Spice Acres

Spice Acres is one of only 10 farms that are part of a farm-leasing program in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park called the Countryside Initiative. Managed in partnership with Countryside, it is the only program in the country that conserves national park land through sustainable farming.

The Scoop:

  • If you are seeking a larger table and there are none available, please give us a call at 216-432-9090 - we may be able to accommodate!
  • Spice is unable to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies due to the nature and format of the event.
  • If you have a Plated Landscape Gift certificate, it will be honored at the value of one seat at your table. Please call us at 216-432-9090 for a promo code as you will still need to reserve your seat via Eventbrite. Gift certificates DO NOT ensure a seat at the table but we make every attempt to accommodate.
  • Please wear comfortable walking shoes {heels not recommended} and dress for the forecasted weather – we feast rain or shine!
  • By attending a Plated Landscape you agree to be photographed/videoed and this media may be used for future marketing and social media posts.
