For the 7th year, the Centre Region community enjoyed local food and wine at Plow to Plate at the Mount Nittany Vineyard and Winery. Co-hosted by Taproot Kitchen, CBCC (Cooking and Baking Centre County), and the MN Winery, interested guests began the evening with a tour of the vineyard. Local chefs who shared their culinary specialties included Tony Sapia of Gemelli Bakers, Mark Johnson from Big Spring Distillery, Harrison Schailey from Harrisons, Jeremiah McClanahan from Fasta Pasta, Ben Stanley of El Gringo Tacos, Thomas Novasall of Nola’s Joint Pizza, Meghan McCracken of Nomad Kitchen, the Harvest Shop from Tait Farm, the awesome crew from Scott Luccchesi’s Happy Valley Restaurants, Michael Prince of Elk Creek Café, and after dinner coffee by W.C. Clarke Roasters.
Guests enjoyed a beautiful evening at the Winery located at 300 Houser Road, Centre Hall. Local chefs prepared small plates created from ingredients from local farmers and available at local farmer markets. A complimentary glass of wine was included in the ticket price.
