Taste of the Region - Part 3
Well known regional chef Patrick Evans-Hylton asked me to be one of the judges in Taste of the Region at the Parade of Homes in Cypress Creek, Smithfield, VA. We got to check out several beautiful homes and try delicious food from the Smithfield area easily accessible to those moving into the area.
Third stop was Vintage Tavern ~ Seasonally Southern (winner of the Critic’s Choice Award that night) with the following:
- Pulled pork layered with Chow Chow on a bed of grits.
Even though I’ve lived most of my life in Virginia, this was the first time I’ve ever had Chow Chow in my life! Patrick took away my “Virginian” card. I think he said he’ll give it back to me later.
Vintage Tavern also had a great lemonade outside which was great…we were all very thirsty at this point.
I took a lot of photos, so I’ll post in segments.
