Churchview Farm Dinner Series

We got to have dinner at Churchview farm which is “a third generation sustainable family farmette in Pittsburgh, PA”.

The farm is tucked away in the South Hills in a place you’d never expect (or easily find.) Churchview is a small, family run farm with chickens (around 60 or so) that live in an old hunting trailer, an old barn and a number of planting beds for everything from herbs to melons.  At some point they are adding goats for milk and grass cutting.

We got a quick tour, got to meet the farm cats, chickens and ducks, had a cocktail made with locally made Boyd & Blair vodka then sat down to a nice spread of goodies to munch on before dinner.

Food was prepared by Kate Romane of E2 and was wonderful as usual.  A very nice bunny ravioli to start followed up with a simple greens salad then a roasted hen with honey polenta and mushrooms. Lots of wine from dreadnought wines in the strip district and some fun conversation made for a very nice dinner.  Ricotta ice cream with fresh strawberries (yum) finished out dinner.

All in all, a very relaxing evening … these seem to sell out rather quickly so if you get the chance to sign up, don’t wait.
