Boer Bok at Palladio.........

We are honored and excited to let you know that our Boer Bok is being prepared by Executive Chef Melissa Close Hart , Best 25 Chefs, Mid-Atlantic James Beard Foundation.  She is at the  Palladio Restaurant located at Barboursville Vineyards.  What a beautiful place!  

Boer Bok will be offered on their June and July menu.  I will post the link when the new menu is updated on their site.  

Check out their website and read about the restaurant, vineyard and the Barboursville Ruins.  I did not know about the ruins until we went to the vineyard to pick up the wine Luke used in his cooking demo at the Montpelier Wine Festival.  I was fascinated by the ruins and that they are still standing since it was built in 1814.  You can read about the history of the Barboursville Ruins and the connection to Jefferson, Madison and agriculture at the above link.
