This exclusive farm-to-table event will provide a unique, fun dining experience while educating guests about the importance of environment sustainability. We chose McMullen Cove’s breathtaking atmosphere as the perfect backdrop for such an occasion; surrounding guests with the natural beauty of Alabama’s mountains and valleys. This special event will raise environmental awareness while cultivating a strong sense of community.
Our chef de cuisine for the event, Helen Herrand – former ACF Chef of the Year, former ACF Apprentice of the Year and former Taste of Huntsville Chairperson – will delight us with seasonal tastes using raw ingredients from our own community farms. Her food is simple and accessible yet highlights the unique flavors of top quality local produce.
